1: Praise Yah! Praise Yahweh, my soul.
2: While I live, I will praise Yahweh. I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist.
3: Don't put your trust in princes, each a son of man in whom there is no help.
4: His spirit departs, and he returns to the earth. In that very day, his thoughts perish.
5: Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Yahweh, his God:
6: who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps truth forever;
7: who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry. Yahweh frees the prisoners.
8: Yahweh opens the eyes of the blind. Yahweh raises up those who are bowed down. Yahweh loves the righteous.
9: Yahweh preserves the foreigners. He upholds the fatherless and widow, but the way of the wicked he turns upside down.
10: Yahweh will reign forever; your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise Yah! Psalm 147
