ESV — Psalm 146

Put Not Your Trust in Princes

146  nPraise the Lord!

Praise the Lord, O my soul!

I will praise the Lord oas long as I live;

pI will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

qPut not your trust in princes,

rin a son of man, in whom there is sno salvation.

When this breath departs, he returns to the earth;

on that very day his plans perish.

uBlessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,

whose vhope is in the Lord his God,

wwho made heaven and earth,

the sea, and all that is in them,

xwho keeps faith forever;

ywho executes justice for the oppressed,

zwho gives food to the hungry.

aThe Lord sets the prisoners free;

bthe Lord opens the eyes of the blind.

cThe Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;

dthe Lord loves the righteous.

eThe Lord watches over the sojourners;

fhe upholds the widow and the fatherless,

but gthe way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

10  hThe Lord will reign forever,

your God, O Zion, to all generations.

nPraise the Lord!
