Psalm 146

English Standard Version

1 Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! (Ps 135:1)2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. (Ps 63:4; Ps 104:33; Ps 145:2)3 Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. (Ps 60:11; Ps 108:12; Ps 118:8; Ps 118:9; Isa 2:22; Jer 17:5)4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. (Job 10:9; Job 34:14; Ps 104:29; Ec 12:7)5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, (Ps 2:12; Ps 119:116; Ps 144:15)6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; (Ps 100:5; Ps 115:15; Ps 117:2)7 who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free; (Ps 68:6; Ps 103:6; Ps 105:20; Ps 107:9; Ps 145:15; Isa 61:1)8 the Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. (Ps 11:7; Ps 145:14; Ps 147:6; Mt 9:30; Joh 9:7)9 The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. (Ex 22:21; Ex 22:22; De 10:18; Ps 10:14; Ps 147:6)10 The Lord will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the Lord! (Ps 10:16; Ps 146:1)
