Psalm 146 - Do Not Put Your Trust in Princes

Do Not Put Your Trust in Princes

1 Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord, O my soul!

2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live;

I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.


3 Put not your trust in princes,

in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.

4 When his breath departs he returns to the earth;

on that very day his plans perish.


5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is in the Lord his God,

6 who made heaven and earth,

the sea, and all that is in them,

who keeps faith forever;

7 who executes justice for the oppressed,

who gives food to the hungry.


The Lord sets the prisoners free;

8 the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.

The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;

the Lord loves the righteous.

9 The Lord watches over the sojourners;

he upholds the widow and the fatherless,

but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.


10 The Lord will reign forever,

your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Praise the Lord!
