|Psalms 103 |
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases;
4 Who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things; so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The LORD executes righteousness and judgment for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the children of Israel.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chasten; neither will he keep his anger forever.
10 He has not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward those who fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him.
14 For he knows our makeup; he remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass, as a flower of the field, and so he flourishes [for a short time].
16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone; and its place is no longer known.
17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness [extends] to his children's children;
18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
19 The LORD has prepared his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless the LORD, you his angels, who excel in strength and perform his commandments, hearkening to the voice of his word.
21 Bless you the LORD, all you his hosts; you ministers of his, who do his pleasure.
22 Bless the LORD, and all his works in all places of his dominion; bless the LORD, O my soul.
