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 therein is:
Which keepeth truth for ever:
7Which executeth judgment 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 them that are bowed down:
The LORD loveth the righteous:
9The LORD preserveth the strangers; He relieveth the fatherless and widow:
But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
10The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion,
Unto all generations.
Praise ye the LORD.
