Bible: Psalm 146:5-10

146:5 How blessed is the one whose helper is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is in the Lord his God,

146:6 the one who made heaven and earth,

the sea, and all that is in them,

who remains forever faithful, 1 

146:7 vindicates the oppressed, 2 

and gives food to the hungry.

The Lord releases the imprisoned.

146:8 The Lord gives sight to the blind.

The Lord lifts up all who are bent over. 3 

The Lord loves the godly.

146:9 The Lord protects those residing outside their native land;

he lifts up the fatherless and the widow, 4 

but he opposes the wicked. 5 

146:10 The Lord rules forever,

your God, O Zion, throughout the generations to come! 6 

Praise the Lord!
