Psalm 146

1 Praise Jah! Let my whole being praise Jehovah.

2 I will praise Jehovah all my life. I will sing praises to my God as long as I live.

3 Do not put your trust in princes Nor in a son of man, who cannot bring salvation.

4 His spirit goes out, he returns to the ground; On that very day his thoughts perish.

5 Happy is the one who has the God of Jacob as his helper, Whose hope is in Jehovah his God,

6 The Maker of heaven and earth, Of the sea, and of all that is in them, The One who always remains faithful,

7 The One securing justice for those defrauded, The One giving bread to the hungry. Jehovah is releasing the prisoners.

8 Jehovah is opening the eyes of the blind; Jehovah is raising up those bowed down; Jehovah loves the righteous.

9 Jehovah is protecting the foreign residents; He sustains the fatherless child and the widow, But he thwarts the plans of the wicked.

10 Jehovah will be King forever, Your God, O Zion, for generation after generation. Praise Jah!
