THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 146 ©
The psalmist stirs up himself to the praise of the Lord, with an admonition that none put his trust in men, but only in God, in regard of His omnipotence, faithfulness, help and comfort, and ever enduring government.
PRAISE ye the LORD.1 Praise the LORD, O my soul.
While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
Puta not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
2His 3breath goeth forth, 4he returneth 5to his earth; in that very day his 6thoughts 7perish.
Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:
Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth 8the prisoners:
Theb LORD 9openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raisethc them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth 10the righteous:
The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the 11way of the wicked he 12turneth upside down.
Thed LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, 13O Zion, unto all generations. 14Praise ye the LORD.
