Psalms 146

Praise Yah!

Praise Yahweh, my soul.

2 While I live, I will praise Yahweh.

I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist.

3 Don’t put your trust in princes,

each a son of man in whom there is no help.

4 His spirit departs, and he returns to the earth.

In that very day, his thoughts perish.

5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,

whose hope is in Yahweh, his God:

6 who made heaven and earth,

the sea, and all that is in them;

who keeps truth forever;

7 who executes justice for the oppressed;

who gives food to the hungry.

Yahweh frees the prisoners.

8 Yahweh opens the eyes of the blind.

Yahweh raises up those who are bowed down.

Yahweh loves the righteous.

9 Yahweh preserves the foreigners.

He upholds the fatherless and widow,

but the way of the wicked he turns upside down.

10 Yahweh will reign forever;

your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Praise Yah!
