New International Reader's Version

Psalm 146

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord.

I will praise the Lord.
    I will praise the Lord all my life.
    I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Don’t put your trust in human leaders.
    Don’t trust in people who can’t save you.
When they die, they return to the ground.
    On that day their plans come to nothing.

Blessed are those who depend on the God of Jacob for help.
    Blessed are those who put their hope in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth and the ocean.
    He made everything in them.
    He remains faithful forever.
He stands up for those who are treated badly.
    He gives food to hungry people.
The Lord sets prisoners free.
    The Lord gives sight to those who are blind.
The Lord lifts up those who feel helpless.
    The Lord loves those who do what is right.
The Lord watches over the outsiders who live in our land.
    He takes good care of children whose fathers have died.
    He also takes good care of widows.
But he causes evil people to fail
    in everything they do.

10 The Lord rules forever.
    The God of Zion will rule for all time to come.

Praise the Lord.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 146

The Lord an Abundant Helper.

1Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
Praise the Lord, O my soul!

While I live I will praise the Lord;
I will sing praises to my God as long as I live.

Do not trust in princes,
In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation (help).

When his spirit leaves him, he returns to the earth;
In that very day his thoughts and plans perish.

How blessed and graciously favored is he whose help is the God of Jacob (Israel),
Whose hope is in the Lord his God,

Who made heaven and earth,
The sea, and all that is in them,
Who keeps truth and is faithful forever,

Who executes justice for the oppressed,
Who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets free the prisoners.


The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the [a]righteous [the upright in heart].

The Lord protects the strangers;
He supports the fatherless and the widow;
But He makes crooked the way of the wicked.
10 
The Lord shall reign forever,
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
