Psalms 103

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!
