Psalm 146

1 Halleluyah! Praise ADONAI, my soul!
2 I will praise ADONAI as long as I live. I will sing praise to my God all my life.
3 Don't put your trust in princes or in mortals, who cannot help.
4 When they breathe their last, they return to dust; on that very day all their plans are gone.
5 Happy is he whose help is Ya'akov's God, whose hope is in ADONAI his God.
6 He made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; he keeps faith forever.
7 He secures justice for the oppressed, he gives food to the hungry. ADONAI sets prisoners free,
8 ADONAI opens the eyes of the blind, ADONAI lifts up those who are bent over. ADONAI loves the righteous.
9 ADONAI watches over strangers, he sustains the fatherless and widows; but the way of the wicked he twists.
10 ADONAI will reign forever, your God, Tziyon, through all generations. Halleluyah!
