Chapter 146

1. Praise you the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
2. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
3. Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4. His breath goes forth, he returns to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5. Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
6. Who made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that is therein: who keeps truth forever:
7. Who executes justice for the oppressed: who gives food to the hungry. The LORD looses the prisoners:
8. The LORD opens the eyes of the blind: the LORD raises them that are bowed down: the LORD loves the righteous:
9. The LORD preserves the strangers; he relieves the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turns upside down.
10. The LORD shall reign forever, even your God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise you the LORD.
