Praise Adonai, my soul!
2I will praise Adonai as long as I live.
I will sing praise to my God all my life.
3Don’t put your trust in princes
or in mortals, who cannot help.
4When they breathe their last, they return to dust;
on that very day all their plans are gone.
5Happy is he whose help is Ya‘akov’s God,
whose hope is in Adonai his God.
6He made heaven and earth,
the sea and everything in them;
he keeps faith forever.
7He secures justice for the oppressed,
he gives food to the hungry.
Adonai sets prisoners free,
8Adonai opens the eyes of the blind,
Adonai lifts up those who are bent over.
Adonai loves the righteous.
9Adonai watches over strangers,
he sustains the fatherless and widows;
but the way of the wicked he twists.
10Adonai will reign forever,
your God, Tziyon, through all generations.
