Justice of the Kingdom
1Halleluyah! Praise Adonai, O my soul!
2I will praise Adonai all my life. I will praise my God yet again.
3Do not put your trust in princes— in man, in whom there is no salvation.
4His breath departs, he returns to his dust. In that very day his plans perish.
5Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in Adonai his God,
6who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps truth forever,
7who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives bread to the hungry. Adonai sets the prisoners free.
8Adonai opens the eyes of the blind. Adonai raises up those who are bowed down. Adonai loves the righteous.
9Adonai protects outsiders, upholds the fatherless and the widow, but thwarts the way of the wicked.
10Adonai will reign forever, your God, O Zion, from generation to generation. Halleluyah!
