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