1 Praise ye Jah! Praise, O my soul, Jehovah. 2 I praise Jehovah during my life, I sing praise to my God while I exist.
3 Trust not in princes -- in a son of man, For he hath no deliverance. 4 His spirit goeth forth, he returneth to his earth, In that day have his thoughts perished.
5 O the happiness of him Who hath the God of Jacob for his help, His hope is on Jehovah his God, 6 Making the heavens and earth, The sea and all that is in them, Who is keeping truth to the age, 7 Doing judgment for the oppressed, Giving bread to the hungry. 8 Jehovah is loosing the prisoners, Jehovah is opening (the eyes of) the blind, Jehovah is raising the bowed down, Jehovah is loving the righteous, 9 Jehovah is preserving the strangers, The fatherless and widow He causeth to stand, And the way of the wicked He turneth upside down.
