Psalm 103


Of David.

My soul, bless the Lord,

and all that is within me, bless his holy name.a

My soul, bless the Lord,

and do not forget all his benefits.b

He forgives all your iniquity;c

he heals all your diseases.d

He redeems your life from the Pit;e

he crowns you with faithful love and compassion.f

He satisfies youA with good things;g

your youth is renewed like the eagle.h

The Lord executes acts of righteousness

and justice for all the oppressed.i

He revealed his ways to Moses,j

his deeds to the people of Israel.k

The Lord is compassionate and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in faithful love.l

He will not always accuse us

or be angry forever.m

10 He has not dealt with us as our sins deserve

or repaid us according to our iniquities.n

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

so great is his faithful love

toward those who fear him.o

12 As far as the east is from the west,

so far has he removed

our transgressions from us.p

13 As a father has compassion on his children,

so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.q

14 For he knows what we are made of,

remembering that we are dust.r

15 As for man, his days are like grass—

he blooms like a flower of the field;s

16 when the wind passes over it, it vanishes,

and its place is no longer known.B,t

17 But from eternity to eternity

the Lord’s faithful love is toward those who fear him,

and his righteousness toward the grandchildrenu

18 of those who keep his covenant,

who remember to observe his precepts.v

19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,

and his kingdom rules over all.w

20 Bless the Lord,

all his angels of great strength,

who do his word,

obedient to his command.x

21 Bless the Lord, all his armies,

his servants who do his will.y

22 Bless the Lord, all his works

in all the places where he rules.z

My soul, bless the Lord!


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
