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 łGod 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 eyesof] 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!
