psalm 146

Do not put your trust in princes, 
in human beings, who cannot save. 
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; 
on that very day their plans come to nothing. 
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, 
whose hope is in the LORD their God. 
He is the Maker of heaven and earth, 
the sea, and everything in them— 
he remains faithful forever. 
 He upholds the cause of the oppressed 
 and gives food to the hungry. 
The LORD sets prisoners free, 
the LORD gives sight to the blind, 
the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, 
the LORD loves the righteous. 
The LORD watches over the foreigner 
and sustains the fatherless and the widow, 
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 
The LORD reigns forever, 
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
