Read Psalm 146


Read Psalm 146

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, my soul!
2I will praise him as long as I live;
I will sing to my God all my life.
3Don’t put your trust in human leaders;
no human being can save you.
4When they die, they return to the dust;
on that day all their plans come to an end.
5Happy are those who have the God of Jacob to help them
and who depend on the Lord their God,
6the Creator of heaven, earth, and sea,
and all that is in them.
He always keeps his promises;
7he judges in favour of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free
8and gives sight to the blind.
He lifts those who have fallen;
he loves his righteous people.
9He protects the strangers who live in our land;
he helps widows and orphans,
but takes the wicked to their ruin.
10The Lord is king for ever.
Your God, O Zion, will reign for all time.
Praise the Lord!


When the people of Israel chose to be ruled by Kings they seem to have put too much trust in human beings.  The Psalmist reminds us to trust in God - the Psalm tells us a lot about God's nature.


He always keeps his promises, he judges in favour of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry.
- Vs 7
Lord I want to have more of your heart in mine.
