Psalm 146 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Praise God Who Helps the Weak

146 Praise the Lord!

My ·whole being [soul; life], praise the Lord.
I will praise the Lord ·all [L with] my life;
I will ·sing praises [make a psalm] to my God as long as I live.

Do not put your ·trust [confidence] in princes
    or other people, who cannot ·save you [give you victory; 118:8–9].
·When people die [L Their spirit goes out], they ·are buried [L return to the ground].
    ·Then all of [L On that day] their plans ·come to an end [perish].
·Happy [Blessed] are those who are helped by the God of Jacob [C another name for Israel].
    Their hope is in the Lord their God.
He made heaven and earth,
    the sea and everything in it [Gen. 1].
    He ·remains [keeps; observes; guards] ·loyal [faithfulness; truth] forever.
He does ·what is fair [justice] for those who have been ·wronged [oppressed; exploited].
    He gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets the prisoners free.
    The Lord ·gives sight to [opens the eyes of] the blind.
The Lord lifts up people who are ·in trouble [bowed down; 145:14].
    The Lord loves ·those who do right [the righteous].
The Lord ·protects [guards] the ·foreigners [sojourners].
    He ·defends [supports] the orphans and widows [C the socially vulnerable],
but he ·blocks [frustrates] the way of the wicked.

10 The Lord will ·be King [reign] forever [47:2; 93:1; 96:10; 97:1; 98:6; 99:1; Rev. 19:6].
·Jerusalem [L Zion; C the location of the Temple], your God is everlasting.

Praise the Lord!
