Psalm 103

Psalm 103

Of David.

Praise the Lord,d my soul;e

all my inmost being, praise his holy name.f

Praise the Lord,g my soul,

and forget noth all his benefits—

who forgives all your sinsi

and healsj all your diseases,

who redeems your lifek from the pit

and crowns you with love and compassion,l

who satisfiesm your desires with good things

so that your youth is renewedn like the eagle’s.o

The Lord works righteousnessp

and justice for all the oppressed.q

He made knownr his wayss to Moses,

his deedst to the people of Israel:

The Lord is compassionate and gracious,u

slow to anger, abounding in love.

He will not always accuse,

nor will he harbor his anger forever;v

10 he does not treat us as our sins deservew

or repay us according to our iniquities.

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

so great is his lovex for those who fear him;y

12 as far as the east is from the west,

so far has he removed our transgressionsz from us.

13 As a father has compassiona on his children,

so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;

14 for he knows how we are formed,b

he remembers that we are dust.c

15 The life of mortals is like grass,d

they flourish like a flowere of the field;

16 the wind blowsf over it and it is gone,

and its placeg remembers it no more.

17 But from everlasting to everlasting

the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,

and his righteousness with their children’s childrenh

18 with those who keep his covenanti

and rememberj to obey his precepts.k

19 The Lord has established his thronel in heaven,

and his kingdom rulesm over all.

20 Praise the Lord,n you his angels,o

you mighty onesp who do his bidding,q

who obey his word.

21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,r

you his servantss who do his will.

22 Praise the Lord, all his workst

everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul.u
