Psalms 103

Psalm 103

Of David.

O my soul, bless the  Lord;
and all that is in me, his holy name.
O my soul, bless the  Lord;
and forget not one of his benefits.
He pardons all your sins,
he heals all your diseases.
He ransoms your life from the pit,
he crowns you with kindness and pity.
He gives you your heart’s desire,
renewing your youth like the eagle’s.

The  Lord executes justice -
and right for all who are wronged.
He revealed his ways to Moses,
his acts to the children of Israel.
Full of pity and grace is the  Lord,
patient, and rich in kindness:
he will not always chide,
nor cherish his anger forever.
10 Not after our sins has he dealt with us,
nor requited us after our wickedness.

11 For high as the heavens o’er the earth
is his love over those who fear him.
12 Far as is east from the west
has he put our transgressions from us.
13 As a father pities his children,
so the  Lord pities those who fear him;
14 for well he knows our frame,
he remembers that we are dust.

15 A person's days are as grass;
blossoms like a flower of the meadow.
16 At the breath of the wind it is gone,
and the place thereof knows it no more.
17 But the love of the  Lord is eternal,
and his kindness to children’s children,
18 to those who keep his covenant
and mindfully do his behests.

19 The  Lord has set his throne in the heavens;
the whole world is under his sway.
20 Bless the  Lord, you angels of his,
mighty heroes performing his word.
21 Bless the  Lord, all you his hosts,
you servants who do his will.
22 Bless the  Lord, all you his works,
far as his sway extends.
O my soul, bless the  Lord.
