Psalm 146
International Standard VersionNew American Standard Bible 1995
1Hallelujah! Praise the LORD, my soul!1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!
2I will praise the LORD as long as I live, singing praises to my God while I exist.2I will praise the LORD while I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3Do not look to nobles, nor to mere human beings who cannot save.3Do not trust in princes, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.
4When they stop breathing, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans evaporate!4His spirit departs, he returns to the earth; In that very day his thoughts perish.
5Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,5How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6maker of heaven and earth, the seas and everything in them, forever the guardian of truth,6Who made heaven and earth, The sea and all that is in them; Who keeps faith forever;
7who brings justice for the oppressed, and who gives food to the hungry. The LORD frees the prisoners;7Who executes justice for the oppressed; Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets the prisoners free.
8the LORD gives sight to the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down. The LORD loves the righteous.8The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; The LORD raises up those who are bowed down; The LORD loves the righteous;
9The LORD stands guard over the stranger; he supports both widows and orphans, but makes the path of the wicked slippery. 9The LORD protects the strangers; He supports the fatherless and the widow, But He thwarts the way of the wicked.
10The LORD will reign forever, your God, Zion, for all generations! Hallelujah!10The LORD will reign forever, Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!
