2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live! I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist!
2 While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
2 I will praise the LORD as long as I live, singing praises to my God while I exist.
3 Do not trust in princes, or in human beings, who cannot deliver!
3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
3 Do not look to nobles, nor to mere human beings who cannot save.
4 Their life's breath departs, they return to the ground; on that day their plans die.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
4 When they stop breathing, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans evaporate!
5 How blessed is the one whose helper is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God,
5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
5 Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6 the one who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who remains forever faithful,
6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:
6 maker of heaven and earth, the seas and everything in them, forever the guardian of truth,
7 vindicates the oppressed, and gives food to the hungry. The Lord releases the imprisoned.
7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:
7 who brings justice for the oppressed, and who gives food to the hungry. The LORD frees the prisoners;
8 The Lord gives sight to the blind. The Lord lifts up all who are bent over. The Lord loves the godly.
8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:
8 the LORD gives sight to the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down. The LORD loves the righteous.
9 The Lord protects those residing outside their native land; he lifts up the fatherless and the widow, but he opposes the wicked.
9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
9 The LORD stands guard over the stranger; he supports both widows and orphans, but makes the path of the wicked slippery.
10 The Lord rules forever, your God, O Zion, throughout the generations to come! Praise the Lord!
10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
10 The LORD will reign forever, your God, Zion, for all generations! Hallelujah!
