1Praise ye the LORD.
Praise the LORD, O my soul.
2While I live will I praise the LORD:
I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
3Put not your trust in princes,
Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth;
In that very day his thoughts perish.
5Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help,
Whose hope is in the LORD his God:
6Which made heaven and earth, the sea,
And all that in them is;
Which keepeth truth for ever:
7Which executeth judgement for the oppressed;
Which giveth food to the hungry:
The LORD looseth the prisoners;
8The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind;
The LORD raiseth up them that are bowed down;
The LORD loveth the righteous;
9The LORD preserveth the strangers;
He upholdeth the fatherless and widow;
But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
10The LORD shall reign for ever,
Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.
Praise ye the LORD.
