Psalms 146

Put Not Your Trust in Princes

a Praise the  Lord!
Praise the  Lord, O my soul!
I will praise the  Lord b as long as I live;
c I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
d Put not your trust in princes,
e in a son of man, in whom there is f no salvation.
When g his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
h Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose i hope is in the  Lord his God,
j who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
k who keeps faith forever;
l who executes justice for the oppressed,
m who gives food to the hungry.
n The  Lord sets the prisoners free;
o the  Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
p The  Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
q the  Lord loves the righteous.
r The  Lord watches over the sojourners;
s he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but t the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10  u The  Lord will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
v Praise the  Lord!
