Psalm 103

The Forgiving God


My soul, praise * Yahweh,

and all that is within me, praise His holy name. w

My soul, praise the Lord,

and do not forget all His benefits. x

He forgives all your sin; y

He heals all your diseases. z

He redeems your life from the * Pit; a

He crowns you with faithful love and compassion. b

He satisfies you c with goodness; d

your youth is renewed like the eagle. e

The Lord executes acts of righteousness

and justice for all the oppressed. f

He revealed His ways to Moses, g

His deeds to the people of Israel. h

The Lord is compassionate and gracious,

slow to anger and rich in faithful love. i

He will not always accuse us

or be angry forever. j

10 He has not dealt with us as our sins deserve

or repaid us according to our offenses. k

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

so great is His faithful love

toward those who * fear Him. l

12 As far as the east is from the west,

so far has He removed

our transgressions from us. m

13 As a father has compassion on his children,

so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. n

14 For He knows what we are made of,

remembering that we are dust. o

15 As for man, his days are like grass—

he blooms like a flower of the field; p

16 when the wind passes over it, it vanishes,

and its place is no longer known. q r

17 But from eternity to eternity

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

and His righteousness toward the grandchildren s

18 of those who keep His covenant,

who remember to observe His precepts. t

19 The Lord has established His throne in heaven,

and His kingdom rules over all. u

20 Praise the Lord,

all His angels of great strength,

who do His word,

obedient to His command. v

21 Praise the Lord, all His armies,

His servants who do His will. w

22 Praise the Lord, all His works

in all the places where He rules. x

My soul, praise Yahweh!
