Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 146:1-10. Psalm 146 is a Psalm of Praise which begins by praising the LORD. The Psalmist declares that he will praise the LORD and sing praises to Him as long as he lives. He encourages us to put our trust in the LORD and not in man.
The Psalmist proclaims that those who put their hope in the LORD will be happy. He is speaking of the LORD God of Jacob, who created heaven and earth, and everything in the earth. The LORD who judges the oppressed, gives food to the hungry and sets the captives free.
He opens the eyes of the blind, raises those who are bowed down, and loves the righteous. The LORD preserves strangers, relieves the fatherless and widows, and turns the way of the wicked upside down. The LORD God of Zion will reign forever, through all generations. Praise the LORD.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
2 While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:
7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:
8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:
9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
Things to think about:
- Do you enjoy praising the LORD?
- What are some ways we can praise the LORD?
- What are the things in this chapter for which the Psalmist says we can praise the LORD?

Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 146 where the Psalmist praises You. He lists all kinds of things for which we can praise You. Help us to constantly look for things and ways to praise Your holy name. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
