The fifth book of Psalms, song 146, New English Translation

Psalm 146

   1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!
   2 I will praise the LORD as long as I live! I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist!
   3 Do not trust in princes, or in human beings, who cannot deliver!
   4 Their life's breath departs, they return to the ground; on that day their plans die.
   5 How blessed is the one whose helper is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
   6 the one who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who remains forever faithful,
   7 vindicates the oppressed, and gives food to the hungry. The LORD releases the imprisoned.
   8 The LORD gives sight to the blind. The LORD lifts up all who are bent over. The LORD loves the godly.
   9 The LORD protects those residing outside their native land; he lifts up the fatherless and the widow, but he opposes the wicked.
   10 The LORD rules forever, your God, O Zion, throughout the generations to come! Praise the LORD!
