natural-mountain-view-hd-photos.jpg I am resolved today to look to Yahweh as my help and my hope:

Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is in Yahweh his God,

who made heaven and earth,

the sea, and all that is in them,

who keeps faith forever;

who executes justice for the oppressed,

who gives food to the hungry.

Yahweh sets the prisoners free;

 Yahweh opens the eyes of the blind.

Yahweh lifts up those who are bowed down;

the Yahweh loves the righteous.

 Yahweh watches over the sojourners;

he upholds the widow and the fatherless,

but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

10  Yahweh will reign forever,

your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Praise Yahweh!

(Psalm 146:5-10, English Standard Version)
