Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  Hallelujah. Praise Hashem, O my soul!

ha-l’-lu-YAH ha-l’-LEE naf-SHEE et a-do-NAI

א  הַלְלוּ־יָהּ הַלְלִי נַפְשִׁי אֶת־יְהֹוָה׃

146:1   Praise Hashem, O my soul

Man lives on earth in two different spheres: As an individual with his own personal struggles, and as part of something bigger; a family, community and a nation, each with its own dynamic. Psalms 146 and 147 present the individual and the communal praise of Hashem. In this psalm, the individual is confronted by the prince who has more power and influence than he does. He must decide to either follow these hollow leaders, or to stand apart and put his faith in God alone. The psalm praises the individual who chooses to follow Hashem and recognizes that he will merit God’s reward.Comment

2  I will praise Hashem all my life, sing hymns to my God while I exist.

ב  אֲהַלְלָה יְהֹוָה בְּחַיָּי אֲזַמְּרָה לֵאלֹהַי בְּעוֹדִי׃

3  Put not your trust in the great, in mortal man who cannot save.

ג  אַל־תִּבְטְחוּ בִנְדִיבִים בְּבֶן־אָדָם שֶׁאֵין לוֹ תְשׁוּעָה׃

4  His breath departs; he returns to the dust; on that day his plans come to nothing.

ד  תֵּצֵא רוּחוֹ יָשֻׁב לְאַדְמָתוֹ בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא אָבְדוּ עֶשְׁתֹּנֹתָיו׃

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

ה  אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁאֵל יַעֲקֹב בְּעֶזְרוֹ שִׂבְרוֹ עַל־יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהָיו׃

6  maker of heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever;

ו  עֹשֶׂה שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ אֶת־הַיָּם וְאֶת־כָּל־אֲשֶׁר־בָּם הַשֹּׁמֵר אֱמֶת לְעוֹלָם׃

7  who secures justice for those who are wronged, gives food to the hungry. Hashem sets prisoners free;

ז  עֹשֶׂה מִשְׁפָּט לָעֲשׁוּקִים נֹתֵן לֶחֶם לָרְעֵבִים יְהֹוָה מַתִּיר אֲסוּרִים׃

8  Hashem restores sight to the blind; Hashem makes those who are bent stand straight; Hashem loves the righteous;

ח  יְהֹוָה פֹּקֵחַ עִוְרִים יְהֹוָה זֹקֵף כְּפוּפִים יְהֹוָה אֹהֵב צַדִּיקִים׃

9  Hashem watches over the stranger; He gives courage to the orphan and widow, but makes the path of the wicked tortuous.

ט  יְהֹוָה שֹׁמֵר אֶת־גֵּרִים יָתוֹם וְאַלְמָנָה יְעוֹדֵד וְדֶרֶךְ רְשָׁעִים יְעַוֵּת׃

10  Hashem shall reign forever, your God, O Tzion, for all generations. Hallelujah.

י  יִמְלֹךְ יְהֹוָה לְעוֹלָם אֱלֹהַיִךְ צִיּוֹן לְדֹר וָדֹר הַלְלוּ־יָהּ׃

    Praise the name of my Messiah and soon returning King, Yeshua Jesus!!!!!!Hallelujah, the Son of the living G-d and Lamb of G-d slain from the foundation of the world!!!!!

    Yesha'yahu 9:6
    6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

    Yesha'yahu 52:14
    14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
    —-
    Yesha'yahu 53
    53 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
    2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
    3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
    4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
    5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
    6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
    7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
    8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
    9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
    10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
    11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
    12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

    It is good to give Praise to Hashem the Lord Almighty the God of Farther Abraham the God of ISRAEL

  • Lingam

    Praise always is worthy of The Lord .

  • 146:1 Praise the LORD, O my soul

    There comes a time when you must decide to either follow the world or a leader, or follow what the Lord thy God teaches and tells you in your heart and soul through the Torah . Mans way is not perm-mint and when you die so does mans rule over you and your soul. This being said if God rules over your life when you die after leading a good and God filled life you then go on upon the Judgement day . Therefor your hope will always be in the resurrection being there with God. You had stored your treasures in Heaven there with Him. This Earth is but temporary. Heaven is Forever. A man must stand alone or with his family at as it were with his people or The Jewish nation as in Israel Choose God over all. God will know His Children by there voices.Amen. Carl
