Psalm 146
New American Standard Bible►► 

The LORD, an Abundant Helper.

1[a]Praise [b]the LORD!

Praise the LORD, my soul!

2I will praise the LORD while I live;

I will sing praises to my God while I [c]have my being.

3Do not trust in noblemen,

In [d]mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.

4His spirit departs, he returns to [e]the earth;

On that very day his plans perish.

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

Whose hope is in the LORD his God,

6Who made heaven and earth,

The sea and everything that is in them;

Who keeps [f]faith forever;

7Who executes justice for the oppressed;

Who gives food to the hungry.

The LORD frees the prisoners.

8The LORD opens the eyes of those who are blind;

The LORD raises up those who are bowed down;

The LORD loves the righteous.

9The LORD watches over strangers;

He [g]supports the fatherless and the widow,

But He [h]thwarts the way of the wicked.

10The LORD will reign forever,

Your God, Zion, to all generations.

[i]Praise [j]the LORD!

[a] 1 Or Hallelujah!
[b] 1 Heb YAH
[c] 2 Lit still am
[d] 3 Lit a son of man
[e] 4 Lit his earth
[f] 6 Or truth
[g] 9 Or relieves
[h] 9 Lit bends
[i] 10 Or Hallelujah!
[j] 10 Heb YAH
