Psalm 146
New King James VersionNET Bible
1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O 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! I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist!
3Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.3Do not trust in princes, or in human beings, who cannot deliver!
4His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; In that very day his plans perish.4Their life's breath departs, they return to the ground; on that day their plans die.
5Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the LORD his God,5How blessed is the one whose helper 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,6the one who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who remains forever faithful,
7Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners.7vindicates the oppressed, and gives food to the hungry. The LORD releases the imprisoned.
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 all who are bent over. The LORD loves the godly.
9The LORD watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.9The LORD protects those residing outside their native land; he lifts up the fatherless and the widow, but he opposes the wicked.
10The LORD shall reign forever— Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!10The LORD rules forever, your God, O Zion, throughout the generations to come! Praise the LORD!
