Bless the Lord, O My Soul
Of David.1 a Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 b Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and c forget not all his benefits,
3who d forgives all your iniquity,
who e heals all your diseases,
4who f redeems your life from the pit,
who g crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5who h satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like i the eagle’s.
6 The Lord works j righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
7He made known his k ways to Moses,
his l acts to the people of Israel.
8The Lord is m merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 n He will not always chide,
nor will he o keep his anger forever.
10He does not deal with us p according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11For q as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his r steadfast love toward s those who fear him;
12as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he t remove our transgressions from us.
13As u a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion v to those who fear him.
14For he knows our frame; ▼
▼Or knows how we are formed
he x remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are like y grass;
he flourishes like z a flower of the field;
16for aa the wind passes over it, and ab it is gone,
and ac its place knows it no more.
17But ad the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on ae those who fear him,
and his righteousness to af children’s children,
18to those who ag keep his covenant
and ah remember to do his commandments.
19The Lord has ai established his throne in the heavens,
and his aj kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless the Lord, O you ak his angels,
you al mighty ones who am do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!
21Bless the Lord, all his an hosts,
his ao ministers, who do his will!
22 ap Bless the Lord, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
aq Bless the Lord, O my soul!
