Psalms 103

Praise for the  Lord’s Mercies.

A Psalm of David.

1 a  Bless the  Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His b  holy name.
2Bless the  Lord, O my soul,
And c  forget none of His benefits;
3Who d  pardons all your iniquities,
Who e  heals all your diseases;
4Who f  redeems your life from the pit,
Who g  crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
5Who h  satisfies your
Or desire
years with good things,
So that your youth is j  renewed like the eagle.

6The  Lord k  performs
Or deeds of vindication
righteous deeds
And judgments for all who are m  oppressed.
7He n  made known His ways to Moses,
His o  acts to the sons of Israel.
8The  Lord is p  compassionate and gracious,
q  Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9He r  will not always strive with us,
Nor will He s  keep His anger forever.
10He has t  not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11For as high u  as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who
Or revere
fear Him.
12As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He w  removed our transgressions from us.
13Just x  as a father has compassion on his children,
So the  Lord has compassion on those who
Or revere
fear Him.
14For z  He Himself knows
I.e. what we are made of
our frame;
He ab  is mindful that we are but ac  dust.

15As for man, his days are ad  like grass;
As a ae  flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16When the af  wind has passed over it, it is no more,
And its ag  place acknowledges it no longer.
17But 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,
18To al  those who keep His covenant
And remember His precepts to do them.

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