Psalm 146: Trust in God Alone, Catholic Bible
Psalm 146: Trust in God Alone
Praise the Lord, O my soul;
2 I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God while I live.
3 Put not your trust in princes,
in man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 When his spirit departs he returns to his earth;
on that day his plans perish.
5 Happy 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 all that is in them;
Who keeps faith forever,
7 secures justice for the oppressed,
gives good food to the hungry.
The Lord sets captives free;
8 the Lord gives sight to the blind.
The Lord raises up those that were bowed down;
the Lord loves the just.
9 The Lord protects strangers;
the fatherless and the widow he sustains,
but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
10 The Lord shall reign forever;
your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia.
Psalm 146: Trust in God Alone is a psalm to remind us to put our trust in God and not in man. God, “Who made heaven and earth” is our God and He will protect and save us, not a mortal man. Most of the psalm reminds us of all God does for His people and the first two verses tell us to praise God “all of my life.” Psalm 146 is a great psalm to remind us to keep our focus and trust in God alone.
