Psalm 146

146
Put Not Your Trust in Princes
1 # See Ps. 135:1 Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
2I will praise the Lord #Ps. 63:4; [Ps. 145:2] as long as I live;
# Ps. 104:33 I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 # Ps. 118:9 Put not your trust in princes,
# Ps. 118:8; [Isa. 2:22; Jer. 17:5] in a son of man, in whom there is #Ps. 60:11; 108:12no salvation.
4When #Ps. 104:29; [Eccles. 12:7]; See Job 10:9; 34:14, 15his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
5 # [Ps. 144:15] Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose #Ps. 119:116; See Ps. 2:12hope is in the Lord his God,
6 # See Ps. 115:15 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
# [Ps. 100:5; 117:2] who keeps faith forever;
7 # Ps. 103:6 who executes justice for the oppressed,
# Ps. 107:9; 145:15 who gives food to the hungry.
# Ps. 105:20; Isa. 61:1; [Ps. 68:6] The Lord sets the prisoners free;
8 # Matt. 9:30; John 9:7 the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
# Ps. 145:14; [Ps. 147:6] The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
# Ps. 11:7 the Lord loves the righteous.
9 # [Ex. 22:21] The Lord watches over the sojourners;
# Deut. 10:18; [Ex. 22:22]; See Ps. 10:14 he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but #[Ps. 147:6]the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10 # See Ps. 10:16 The Lord will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
# [See ver. 1 above] Praise the Lord!
