Do not trust human princes (Ps 146:3-146:4)

“Do not put your trust in princes.

Do not put your trust in mortals.

There is no help from them.

When their breath departs

They return to the earth.

On that very day

Their plans perish.”

You were not to put your trust in human princes. They were no help. When they died, they returned to earth. When they stopped breathing, so did all their plans perish with them.
