Psalm 146

I Will Praise Yahweh Throughout My Life

Praise Yah!
Praise Yahweh, O my soul!
I will praise Yahweh throughout my life;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
Do not trust in nobles,
In merely a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
His spirit departs, he returns to the earth;
In that very day his plans perish.
How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in Yahweh his God,
Who made heaven and earth,
The sea and all that is in them;
Who keeps truth forever;
Who does justice for the oppressed;
Who gives food to the hungry.
Yahweh sets the prisoners free.

Yahweh opens the eyes of the blind;
Yahweh raises up those who are bowed down;
Yahweh loves the righteous;
Yahweh keeps the sojourners;
He helps up the orphan and the widow,
But He bends the way of the wicked.
Yahweh will reign forever,
Your God, O Zion, from generation to generation.
Praise Yah!
