Psalm 146

1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!

2 While I live I will praise the LORD; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

3 Do not put your trust in princes, nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

4 His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; in that very day his plans perish.

5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God,

6 Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps truth forever,

7 Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners.

8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; the LORD raises those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous.

9 The LORD watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; but the way of the wicked He turns upside down.

10 The LORD shall reign forever–your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!

 

Even the help of a trustworthy man can only be trusted as long as he is alive.  How much better is the help of an immortal, eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God?
