146 Praise Jah, YOU people!*+Praise Jehovah, O my soul.+ 2 I will praise Jehovah during my lifetime.+I will make melody to my God as long as I am.+ 3 Do not put YOUR trust in nobles,+Nor in the son of earthling man,* to whom no salvation belongs.+ 4 His spirit* goes out,+ he goes back to his ground;+In that day his thoughts do perish.*+ 5 Happy is the one who has the God* of Jacob for his help,+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 keeping trueness to time indefinite,+ 7 The One executing judgment for the defrauded ones,+The One giving bread to the hungry ones.+Jehovah is releasing those who are bound.+ 8 Jehovah is opening [the eyes of] the blind ones;+Jehovah is raising up the ones bowed down;+Jehovah is loving the righteous ones.+ 9 Jehovah is guarding the alien residents;+The fatherless boy and the widow he relieves,+But the way+ of the wicked ones he makes crooked.+ 10 Jehovah will be king to time indefinite,+Your God, O Zion, for generation after generation.+Praise Jah, YOU people!+
