Psalm 146


Put Not Your Trust in Princes



1 Praise the LORD! 

      Praise the LORD, O my soul! 

      2 I will praise the LORD as long as I live; 

      I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. 


      3 Put not your trust in princes, 

      in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. 

      4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; 

      on that very day his plans perish. 


      5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, 

      whose hope is in the LORD his God, 

      6 who made heaven and earth, 

      the sea, and all that is in them, 

      who keeps faith forever; 

      7 who executes justice for the oppressed, 

      who gives food to the hungry. 


      The LORD sets the prisoners free; 

      8 the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. 

      The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; 

      the LORD loves the righteous. 

      9 The LORD watches over the sojourners; 

      he upholds the widow and the fatherless, 

      but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 


      10 The LORD will reign forever, 

      your God, O Zion, to all generations. 

      Praise the LORD!
