1 Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
2 While I live I will praise the LORD; I will sing praises to my God while I have any being.
3 Do not put your trust in princes, [nor] in the son of man in whom [there is] no salvation.
4 His breath goes forth; he returns to the earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Blessed [is] he who [has] the God of Jacob for his help, whose help [is] in the LORD his God,
6 who made the heavens and earth, the sea and all that [is] in it; who keeps truth forever;
7 who carries out judgment for the mistreated; who gives food to the hungry. The LORD lets the prisoners loose;
8 the Lord opens [the eyes of] the blind; the LORD raises those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous;
9 the LORD preserves the strangers; He relieves the orphan and widow, but the way of the wicked He turns upside down.
10 The LORD shall reign forever, even your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!
