Psalms 103

Praise for the  Lord’s Mercies.

A Psalm of David.

a Bless the  Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His b holy name.
Bless the  Lord, O my soul,
And c forget none of His benefits;
Who d pardons all your iniquities,
Who e heals all your diseases;
Who f redeems your life from the pit,
Who g crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
Who h satisfies your
Or desire
years with good things,
So that your youth is j renewed like the eagle.

The  Lord k performs
Or deeds of vindication
righteous deeds
And judgments for all who are m oppressed.
He n made known His ways to Moses,
His o acts to the sons of Israel.
The  Lord is p compassionate and gracious,
q Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
He r will not always strive with us,
Nor will He s keep His anger forever.
10 He has t not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high u as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who
Or revere
fear Him.
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He w removed our transgressions from us.
13 Just x as a father has compassion on his children,
So the  Lord has compassion on those who
Or revere
fear Him.
14 For z He Himself knows
I.e. what we are made of
our frame;
He ab is mindful that we are but ac dust.

15 As for man, his days are ad like grass;
As a ae flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16 When the af wind has passed over it, it is no more,
And its ag place acknowledges it no longer.
17 But the ah lovingkindness of the  Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who
Or revere
fear Him,
And His
I.e. faithfulness to His gracious promises
righteousness ak to children’s children,
18 To al those who keep His covenant
And remember His precepts to do them.

19 The  Lord has established His am throne in the heavens,
And His
Or kingdom
ao sovereignty rules over
I.e. the universe
20 Bless the  Lord, you aq His angels,
ar Mighty in strength, who as perform His word,
at Obeying the voice of His word!
21 Bless the  Lord, all you au His hosts,
You av who serve Him, doing His will.
22 Bless the  Lord aw all you works of His,
In all places of His dominion;
Bless the  Lord, O my soul!
