Psalms 103

A Psalm of David.

1 Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name. 2Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His praises; 3who forgives all your transgressions, who heals all your diseases; 4who redeems your life from corruption; who crowns you with mercy and compassion; 5who satisfies your desire with good things; so that your youth shall be renewed like that of the eagle. 6The Lord executes mercy and judgment for all that are injured. 7He made known His ways to Moses, and His will to the children of Israel. 8The Lord is compassionate and gracious, longsuffering, and full of mercy. 9He will not always be angry; neither will He be wrathful forever. 10He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor recompensed us according to our iniquities. 11For as the heaven is high above the earth, the Lord has so increased His mercy toward them that fear Him. 12As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. 13As a father pities his children, the Lord pities them that fear Him. 14For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. 15As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so shall he flourish. 16For the wind passes over it, and it shall not be; and it shall know its place no more. 17But the mercy of the Lord is from generation to generation upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness to children's children; 18to them that keep His covenant, and remember His commandments, to do them. 19The Lord has prepared His throne in the heaven; and His kingdom rules over all. 20Bless the Lord, all you His angels, mighty in strength, who do His bidding, ready to hearken to the voice of His words. 21Bless the Lord, all you His hosts; you ministers of His that do His will. 22Bless the Lord, all His works, in every place of His dominion; bless the Lord, O my soul.
