1: Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah, O my soul. 2: As long as I live will I praise Jehovah; I will sing psalms unto my God while I have my being. 3: Put not confidence in nobles, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. 4: His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his purposes perish. 5: Blessed is he who hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Jehovah his God, 6: Who made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is therein; who keepeth truth for ever; 7: Who executeth judgment for the oppressed, who giveth bread to the hungry. Jehovah looseth the prisoners; 8: Jehovah openeth [the eyes of] the blind; Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down; Jehovah loveth the righteous; 9: Jehovah preserveth the strangers; he lifteth up the fatherless and the widow; but the way of the wicked doth he subvert. 10: Jehovah will reign for ever, [even] thy God, O Zion, from generation to generation. Halleluiah!
