1Praise ye Jehovah.
Praise Jehovah, O my soul.
2While I live will I praise Jehovah:
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 Jehovah his God:
6Who made heaven and earth,
The sea, and all that in them is;
Who keepeth truth for ever;
7Who executeth justice for the oppressed;
Who giveth food to the hungry.
Jehovah looseth the prisoners;
8Jehovah openeth the eyes of the blind;
Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down;
Jehovah loveth the righteous;
9Jehovah preserveth the sojourners;
He upholdeth the fatherless and widow;
But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
10Jehovah will reign for ever,
Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.
Praise ye Jehovah.
