Shout praises to the LORD! With all that I am,

  I will shout his praises.

I will sing and praise the LORD God

  for as long as I live.

You can't depend on anyone,

  not even a great leader.

Once they die and are buried,

  that will be the end of all their plans.

The LORD God of Jacob blesses everyone

  who trusts him and depends on him.

God made heaven and earth;

  he created the sea and everything else.

  God always keeps his word.

He gives justice to the poor

  and food to the hungry.

The LORD sets prisoners free and heals blind eyes.

  He gives a helping hand to everyone who falls.

The LORD loves good people and looks after strangers.

  He defends the rights of orphans and widows,

  but destroys the wicked.

The LORD God of Zion

 will rule forever!

Shout praises to the LORD!

Psalm 146 (Contemporary English Version)
