Psalm of the Day – November 16, 2021 (Psalm 146)

1   Praise the LORD! 
     Praise the LORD, O my soul! 
2   I will praise the LORD as long as I live; 
          I will sing praises to my God all my life long.

3   Do not put your trust in princes, 
          in mortals, in whom there is no help. 
4   When their breath departs, they return to the earth; 
          on that very day their plans perish.

5   Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, 
          whose hope is in the LORD their God, 
6   who made heaven and earth, 
          the sea, and all that is in them; 
     who keeps faith forever; 
7        who executes justice for the oppressed; 
          who gives food to the hungry.

     The LORD sets the prisoners free; 
8        the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. 
     The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; 
          the LORD loves the righteous. 
9   The LORD watches over the strangers; 
          he upholds the orphan and the widow, 
          but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

10 The LORD will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the LORD!
