Psalm 146 Revised Standard Version

Praise for the LORD's Righteous Acts

146 1  Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! 2  I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have being. 3  Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no help. 4  When his breath departs he returns to his earth; on that very day his plans perish.

5  Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, 6  who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith for ever; 7  who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free; 8  the Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. 9  The Lord watches over the sojourners, he upholds the widow and the fatherless; but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 10  The Lord will reign for ever, thy God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the Lord!
