PSALM 146

« Psalm 145 | Psalm 146 | Psalm 147 »

Put Not Your Trust in Princes
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 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 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 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 forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord!
