Â The sea and all that is in them;
Â Who keeps faith forever;
7 Who executes justice for the oppressed;
Â Who gives food to the hungry.
Â The LORD sets the prisoners free.
8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind;
Â The LORD raises up those who are bowed down;
Â The LORD loves the righteous;
9 The LORD protects the strangers;
