1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul.
2 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, in the son of man, in whom no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Happy that the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope in the Lord his God:
6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein : which keepeth truth for ever:
7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The Lord looseth the prisoners:
8 The Lord openeth the blind: the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down: the Lord loveth the righteous:
9 The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
10 The Lord shall reign for ever, thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord.
