Psalm 146
New King James VersionNew Living Translation
1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!1Praise the LORD! Let all that I am praise the LORD.
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 with my dying breath.
3Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.3Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there.
4His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; In that very day his plans perish.4When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them.
5Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the LORD his God,5But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the LORD their God.
6Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps truth forever,6He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever.
7Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners.7He gives justice to the oppressed and 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 opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down. 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 the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
10The LORD shall reign forever— Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!10The LORD will reign forever. He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations. Praise the LORD!
