The LORD an Abundant Helper.
1 Praise F1523 the F1524 LORD!
Praise R4549 the LORD, O my soul!
2 I will praise the LORD while R4550 I live;
I will sing R4551 praises to my God while I have my being.
3 Do R4552 not trust in princes,
In mortal F1525 man, R4553 in whom there is no R4554 salvation.
4 His spirit R4555 departs, he returns R4556 to the F1526 earth;
In that very day his thoughts R4557 perish.
5 How blessed R4558 is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope R4559 is in the LORD his God,
6 Who made R4560 heaven and earth,
The sea R4561 and all that is in them;
Who keeps R4562 faith F1527 forever;
7 Who executes R4563 justice for the oppressed;
Who gives R4564 food to the hungry.
The LORD sets R4565 the prisoners free.
8 The LORD opens R4566 the eyes of the blind;
The LORD raises R4567 up those who are bowed down;
The LORD loves R4568 the righteous;
9 The LORD protects R4569 F1528 the strangers; F1529
He supports R4570 F1530 the fatherless and the widow,
But He thwarts F1531 the R4571 way of the wicked.
10 The LORD will reign R4572 forever,
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise F1532 the F1533 LORD!
