Psalm 146
NASB 1977
The LORD an Abundant Helper.

     1Praise the LORD!
            Praise the LORD, O my soul!

     2I will praise the LORD while I live;
            I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

     3Do not trust in princes,
            In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.

     4His spirit departs, he returns to the earth;
            In that very day his thoughts perish.

     5How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
            Whose hope is in the LORD his God;

     6Who made heaven and earth,
            The sea and all that is in them;
            Who keeps faith forever;

     7Who executes justice for the oppressed;
            Who gives food to the hungry.
            The LORD sets the prisoners free.

     8The LORD opens the eyes of the blind;
            The LORD raises up those who are bowed down;
            The LORD loves the righteous;

     9The LORD protects the strangers;
            He supports the fatherless and the widow;
            But He thwarts the way of the wicked.

     10The LORD will reign forever,
            Thy God, O Zion, to all generations.
            Praise the LORD!
