“Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul!”
This psalm, beginning the last group, psalms of praise, declares that man’s help is limited; God’s is not. The Creator maintains his creation, vv. 5-6. The King of Kings helps his people, vv. 7-10.
Our plans last only as long as our life, vv. 3-4. So we must not place trust in man, no matter how powerful. When God is our help and hope, v. 5, how happy we will be!
