Psalms - Chapter 146 | New King James Version

  • 1. Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul!
  • 2. While I live I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
  • 3. Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.
  • 4. His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; In that very day his plans perish.
  • 5. Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the Lord 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. The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.
  • 8. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; The Lord raises those who are bowed down; The Lord loves the righteous.
  • 9. The Lord watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.
  • 10. The Lord shall reign forever-- Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the Lord!
