Praise the Lord O my Soul.  Psalm 146(v145)

1Praise Yahweh!
Praise Yahweh, O my soul!
2I will praise Yahweh as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have being.

3Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no help.
4When his breath departs he returns to his earth;
on that very day his plans perish.

5Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in Yahweh his God,
6who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them;
who keeps faith for ever;
7who executes justice for the oppressed;
who gives food to the hungry.

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

10Yahweh will reign for ever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise Yahweh!

This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
