Text: Psalm 146
Sermon: Praise the LORD for His Faithfulness
146 [a]Praise [b]the Lord!
Praise the Lord, my soul!
2 I will praise the Lord while I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I [c]have my being.
3 Do not trust in noblemen,
In [d]mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 His spirit departs, he returns to [e]the earth;
On that very day his plans perish.
5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God,
6 Who made heaven and earth,
The sea and everything that is in them;
Who keeps [f]faith forever;
7 Who executes justice for the oppressed;
Who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
8 The Lord opens the eyes of those who are blind;
The Lord raises up those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the righteous.
9 The Lord watches over strangers;
He [g]supports the fatherless and the widow,
But He [h]thwarts the way of the wicked.
10 The Lord will reign forever,
Your God, Zion, to all generations.
[i]Praise [j]the Lord!
