Psalm 146
New American Bible Revised Edition

Psalm 146*

Trust in God the Creator and Redeemer


2Praise the Lord, my soul;

I will praise the Lord all my life,

sing praise to my God while I live.a


3Put no trust in princes,

in children of Adam powerless to save.b

4Who breathing his last, returns to the earth;

that day all his planning comes to nothing.c


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

whose hope is in the Lord, his God,

6The maker of heaven and earth,

the seas and all that is in them,d

Who keeps faith forever,

7secures justice for the oppressed,e

who gives bread to the hungry.

The Lord sets prisoners free;f

8the Lord gives sight to the blind.

The Lord raises up those who are bowed down;g

the Lord loves the righteous.

9The Lord protects the resident alien,

comes to the aid of the orphan and the widow,h

but thwarts the way of the wicked.

10The Lord shall reign forever,

your God, Zion, through all generations!i
