Praise to Yahweh for His Help

1 Praise Yah. Praise Yahweh, O my soul.
2 I will praise Yahweh while I live; I will sing praises to my God while I [am] still [alive].
3 Do not place trust in princes, in a son of humankind with whom there is no deliverance.
4 His breath departs; he returns to his plot; on that day his plans perish.
5 Blessed [is the one] whose help [is] the God of Jacob, whose hope [is] on Yahweh [as] his God,
6 who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that [is] in them, the one who keeps faith forever,
7 [who] executes justice for the oppressed, [who] gives food for the hungry. Yahweh sets prisoners free;
8 Yahweh opens [the eyes of the] blind; Yahweh raises up [those] bowed down; Yahweh loves [the] righteous;
9 Yahweh protects [the] strangers. He helps up [the] orphan and [the] widow, but [the] way of [the] wicked he {thwarts}.
10 Yahweh will reign forever, Your God, O Zion, {throughout all generations}. Praise Yah.
