146 Praise Jehovah!
Praise Jehovah, my soul;
2 I will praise Jehovah while I live,
make music for my God while I exist.
3 Do not trust confidently in noblemen,
in a human being to whom salvation does not belong:
4 The breath in him will go out,
he will go back to the soil he came from,
that day his goodwill is a total loss.
5 Happy he who has Jacob’s God for his help,
whose reliance is on his God Jehovah,
6 Maker of heavens and earth,
of the sea and everything in it;
Him who keeps to loyalty forever,
7 doer of justice for those to whom it is denied,
Giver of bread to hungry men;
Jehovah undoes prisoners’ fetters,
8 Jehovah opens blind men’s eyes,
Jehovah raises men who are bent down,
Jehovah loves honest men,
9 Jehovah safeguards immigrants,
Keeps orphan and widow on their feet
and circumvents wrong-doers’ courses.
10 Jehovah shall reign forever,
your God, Sion, to generation after generation.
