1 aBless the Lord, O my soul:
And all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 aBless the Lord, O my soul,
And bforget not all his benefits:
3 Who cdforgiveth all thine iniquities;
Who dehealeth all thy diseases;
4 Who fredeemeth gthy life from hdestruction;
Who icrowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy kmouth with good things;
So that thy youth is renewed llike the eagle’s.
6 The Lord mexecuteth righteousness
And mjudgment for all that are oppressed.
7 nHe made known his ways unto Moses,
His acts unto the children of Israel.
8 oThe Lord is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger, and †plenteous in mercy.
9 pHe will not always chide:
Neither will he qkeep his anger for ever.
10 rHe hath not dealt with us after our sins;
Nor srewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 tFor †as the heaven is high above the earth,
So ugreat is his mercy toward vthem that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far hath he wremoved our transgressions from us.
13 xLike as a father pitieth his children,
So the Lord pitieth vthem that fear him.
14 For he knoweth our yframe;
zHe remembereth that we are adust.
15 As for man, his days are as bgrass:
As a cflower of the field, so he bflourisheth.
16 For ccthe wind passeth over it, and †it is gone;
And dthe place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But ethe mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon vthem that fear him,
And his righteousness funto children’s children;
18 To such as gkeep his covenant,
And to those that remember his hcommandments to do them.
19 The Lord hath prepared ihis throne in the heavens;
And khis kingdom ruleth over all.
20 Bless the Lord, ye lhis angels,
†That excel in strength, that mdo his commandments,
Hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21 Bless ye the Lord, all ye lnhis hosts;
Ye oministers of his, that do phis pleasure.
22 qBless the Lord, all his works
In all places of his dominion:
rBless the Lord, O my soul.
