1Praise ye the LORD.Praise the LORD, O my soul.2
While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.a4
His breath goeth forth , he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughtsperish .
5Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:6
Which madeheaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepethtruth for ever:7
Which executethjudgment for the oppressed : which givethfood to the hungry. The LORDlooseth the prisoners :
The LORDopeneth the eyes of the blind: the LORDraiseth them that are bowed down : the LORDloveth the righteous:9
The LORDpreserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down .
The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto allgenerations.Praise ye the LORD.
