I will praise the LORD all my life;1 I will sing praise2 to my God as long as I live.33
Do not put your trust in princes,4 in mortal men,5 who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;6 on that very day their plans come to nothing.75
Blessed is he8 whose help9 is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
the Maker of heaven10 and earth, the sea, and everything in them-- the LORD, who remains faithful11 forever.
He upholds12 the cause of the oppressed13 and gives food to the hungry.14 The LORD sets prisoners free,158
the LORD gives sight16 to the blind,17 the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down,18 the LORD loves the righteous.199
The LORD watches over the alien20 and sustains the fatherless21 and the widow,22 but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
The LORD reigns23 forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.
