Psalms 146:1-10

146  Praise Jah, YOU people!*+ Praise Jehovah, O my soul.+   I will praise Jehovah during my lifetime.+ I will make melody to my God as long as I am.+   Do not put YOUR trust in nobles,+ Nor in the son of earthling man,* to whom no salvation belongs.+   His spirit* goes out,+ he goes back to his ground;+ In that day his thoughts do perish.*+   Happy is the one who has the God* of Jacob for his help,+ 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 keeping trueness to time indefinite,+   The One executing judgment for the defrauded ones,+ The One giving bread to the hungry ones.+ Jehovah is releasing those who are bound.+   Jehovah is opening [the eyes of] the blind ones;+ Jehovah is raising up the ones bowed down;+ Jehovah is loving the righteous ones.+   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!+
