2 O put not your trust in princes, nor in any child of man; *
for there is no help in them.
3 For when the breath of man goeth forth, he shall turn again

4 Blessed is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, * and
whose hope is in the LORD his God:
5 Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that therein is;
* who keepeth his promise for ever;
6 Who helpeth them to right that suffer wrong; * who feedeth

10 The LORD thy God, O Sion, shall be King for evermore, * and
throughout all generations.
