1 Praise ye Yah. Praise Yahweh, O my soul.
2 While I live will I praise Yahweh: I will sing praises unto my Elohim while I have any being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
We must earnestly desire God's personal companionship. We must not be content or happy without it. It must be a constant yearning and feeling of need.
Sad and bitter experience in this life greatly strengthens this desire. That is one of the reasons it is needed and beneficial. Only God is dependable. Only God understands.
In God's mercy and wisdom, there can be much comfort and support in human beings, but we cannot make our happiness dependent on them, or build upon them, or build on them as our foundation. All flesh is grass. In God alone is safety and security.
Bro Growcott - ~Search Me O God
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Happy is he that hath the El of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Yahweh his Elohim:
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. Yahweh looseth the prisoners:
8 Yahweh openeth the eyes of the blind: Yahweh raiseth them that are bowed down: Yahweh loveth the righteous:
9 Yahweh preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
10 Yahweh shall reign for ever, even thy Elohim, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye Yah.
