Psalm 103:1–22

1 aBless the Lord, O my soul,

And all that is within me, bless His bholy name.

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And aforget none of His benefits;

3 Who apardons all your iniquities,

Who bheals all your diseases;

4 Who aredeems your life from the pit,

Who bcrowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;

5 Who asatisfies your 1years with good things,

So that your youth is brenewed like the eagle.

6 The Lord aperforms 1righteous deeds

And judgments for all who are boppressed.

7 He amade known His ways to Moses,

His bacts to the sons of Israel.

8 The Lord is acompassionate and gracious,

bSlow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.

9 He awill not always strive with us,

Nor will He bkeep His anger forever.

10 He has anot dealt with us according to our sins,

Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11 For as high aas the heavens are above the earth,

So great is His lovingkindness toward those who 1fear Him.

12 As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He aremoved our transgressions from us.

13 Just aas a father has compassion on his children,

So the Lord has compassion on those who 1fear Him.

14 For aHe Himself knows 1our frame;

He bis mindful that we are but cdust.

15 As for man, his days are alike grass;

As a bflower of the field, so he flourishes.

16 When the awind has passed over it, it is no more,

And its bplace acknowledges it no longer.

17 But the alovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who 1fear Him,

And His 2righteousness bto children’s children,

18 To athose who keep His covenant

And remember His precepts to do them.

19 The Lord has established His athrone in the heavens,

And His 1bsovereignty rules over 2all.

20 Bless the Lord, you aHis angels,

bMighty in strength, who cperform His word,

dObeying the voice of His word!

21 Bless the Lord, all you aHis hosts,

You bwho serve Him, doing His will.

22 Bless the Lord, aall you works of His,

In all places of His dominion;

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
