Psalms Chapter 103 |
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
all my being, His holy name.
2Bless the Lord, O my soul
and do not forget all His bounties.
3He forgives all your sins,
heals all your diseases.
4He redeems your life from the Pit,
surrounds you with steadfast love and mercy.
5He satisfies you with good things in the prime of life,
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6The Lord executes righteous acts
and judgments for all who are wronged.
7He made known His ways to Moses,
His deeds to the children of Israel.
8The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love.
9He will not contend forever,
or nurse His anger for all time.
10He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
nor has He requited us according to our iniquities.
11For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.
12As east is far from west,
so far has He removed our sins from us.
13As a father has compassion for his children,
so the Lord has compassion for those who fear Him.
14For He knows how we are formed;
He is mindful that we are dust.
15Man, his days are like those of grass;
he blooms like a flower of the field;
16a wind passes by and it is no more,
its own place no longer knows it.
17But the Lord’s steadfast love is for all eternity
toward those who fear Him,
and His beneficence is for the children’s children
18of those who keep His covenant
and remember to observe His precepts.
19The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
and His sovereign rule is over all.
20Bless the Lord, O His angels,
mighty creatures who do His bidding,
ever obedient to His bidding;
21bless the Lord, all His hosts,
His servants who do His will;
22bless the Lord, all His works,
through the length and breadth of His realm;
bless the Lord, O my soul.
