146:1 Praise Yah! Praise Yahweh, my soul.
146:2 While I live, I will praise Yahweh. I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist.
146:3 Don't put your trust in princes, Each a son of man in whom there is no help.
146:4 His spirit departs, and he returns to the earth. In that very day, his thoughts perish.
146:5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in Yahweh, his God:
146:6 Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps truth forever;
146:7 Who executes justice for the oppressed; Who gives food to the hungry. Yahweh frees the prisoners.
146:8 Yahweh opens the eyes of the blind. Yahweh raises up those who are bowed down. Yahweh loves the righteous.
146:9 Yahweh preserves the foreigners. He upholds the fatherless and widow, But the way of the wicked he turns upside down.
146:10 Yahweh will reign forever; Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise Yah!
