Psalm 146


1 Praise Yahweh!
Praise Yahweh, O my soul!
2 I will praise Yahweh as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in Yahweh his God,
6 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
who keeps faith forever;
7 who executes justice for the oppressed,
who gives food to the hungry.
Yahweh sets the prisoners free;
8 Yahweh opens the eyes of the blind.
Yahweh lifts up those who are bowed down;
Yahweh loves the righteous.
9 Yahweh watches over the sojourners;
he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10 Yahweh will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise Yahweh!
