Psalm 146 is a jubilant song of praise to the Lord, exhorting others not to trust in mortal men, who cannot save, but to put hope in God who reigns forever. It is a powerful reminder of God's sovereignty and faithfulness, highlighting His creative power, justice for the oppressed, and compassion for the hungry, the prisoner, the blind, the bowed down, the righteous, the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow. The psalm celebrates God's eternal reign, emphasizing His everlasting faithfulness to His people and to Jerusalem, and calls for a soul-deep commitment to praise Him all our days.

Psalm 146

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, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4  His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

5  Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:

6  Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: 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 eyes of 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, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
