146:1 Hallelujah. Praise the Lord, O my soul.

146:2 I will praise the Lord while I live; I will sing praises unto my God while I have my being.

146:3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

146:4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his dust; in that very day his thoughts perish.

146:5 Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God,

146:6 Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is; who keepeth truth for ever;

146:7 Who executeth justice for the oppressed; who giveth bread to the hungry. the Lord looseth the prisoners;

146:8 the Lord openeth the eyes of the blind; the Lord raiseth up them that are bowed down; the Lord loveth the righteous;

146:9 the Lord preserveth the strangers; He upholdeth the fatherless and the widow; but the way of the wicked He maketh crooked.

146:10 the Lord will reign for ever, Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Hallelujah.
