Psalms 146
Shout Praises to the Lord
1Shout praises to the Lord!
With all that I am,
I will shout his praises.
2I will sing and praise
the Lord God
as long as I live.
3You can't depend on anyone,
not even a great leader.
4Once they die and are buried,
that will be the end
of all their plans.
5The Lord God of Jacob blesses
everyone who trusts him
and depends on him.
6 # Ac 4.24; 14.15. God made heaven and earth;
he created the sea
and everything else.
God always keeps his word.
7He gives justice to the poor
and food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free
8and heals blind eyes.
He gives a helping hand
to everyone who falls.
The Lord loves good people
9and looks after strangers.
He defends the rights
of orphans and widows,
but destroys the wicked.
10The Lord God of Zion
will rule forever!
Shout praises to the Lord!
