[NAS]  [VSN]  [<<]  [>>]
Psalm 146

The LORD an Abundant Helper.

1 Praise the LORD!
          Praise the LORD, O my soul!

2 I will praise the LORD while I live;
          I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

3 Do not trust in princes,
          In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.

4 His spirit departs, he returns to the earth;
          In that very day his thoughts perish.

5 How blessed 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 forever;

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 raises up those who are bowed down;
          The LORD loves the righteous;

9 The LORD protects the strangers;
          He supports the fatherless and the widow,
          But He thwarts the way of the wicked.

10 The LORD will reign forever,
          Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
          Praise the LORD!
