Psalm 146 New International Version

Praise for the LORD's Righteous Acts

146 1  Praise the Lord.[1]Praise the Lord, my soul. 2  I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. 3  Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save. 4  When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing.

5  Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God. 6  He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them- he remains faithful forever. 7  He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free, 8  the Lord gives sight to the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous. 9  The Lord watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. 10  The Lord reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the Lord.
