Psalm 146:1-10

  • Trust in God, not in men

    • At death, man’s thoughts perish (4)

    • God raises up those bent down (8)

146  Praise Jah!*+ Let my whole being* praise Jehovah.+   I will praise Jehovah all my life. I will sing praises* to my God as long as I live.   Do not put your trust in princes*Nor in a son of man, who cannot bring salvation.+   His spirit* goes out, he returns to the ground;+On that very day his thoughts perish.+   Happy is the one who has the God of Jacob as his helper,+Whose hope is in Jehovah his God,+   The Maker of heaven and earth,Of the sea, and of all that is in them,+The One who always remains faithful,+   The One securing justice for those defrauded,The One giving bread to the hungry.+ Jehovah is releasing the prisoners.*+   Jehovah is opening the eyes of the blind;+Jehovah is raising up those bowed down;+Jehovah loves the righteous.   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!*
