1aPraisebthe LORD! 1Praise the LORD, O my soul!
I will praise the LORD2while I live; I will 3singpraises to my Godwhile I have my being.
34Do not trust in princes, In cmortal5man, in whomthere is 6nosalvation.
His 7spiritdeparts, he 8returns to dthe earth; In that very day his 9thoughtsperish.
How 10blessed is he whosehelp is the God of Jacob, Whose 11hope is in the LORD his God,
Who 12madeheaven and earth, The 13sea and all that is in them; Who 14keepsefaithforever;
Who 15executesjustice for the oppressed; Who 16givesfood to the hungry. The LORD17sets the prisonersfree.
The LORD18opens the eyes of the blind; The LORD19raises up those who are boweddown; The LORD20loves the righteous;
The LORDf21protects the gstrangers; He h22supports the fatherless and the widow, But He ithwarts23the way of the wicked.
The LORD will 24reignforever, Your God, O Zion, to allgenerations. jPraisekthe LORD!
