Psalm 103

Psalm 103

1: Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

2: Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

3: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

4: Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5: Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

6: The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

7: He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

8: The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

9: He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10: He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11: For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12: As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13: Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

14: For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

15: As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

16: For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

17: But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

18: To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

19: The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20: Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

21: Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

22: Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.


crowned with lovingkindness and tender mercies

having my mouth satisfied with good things

experiencing the LORD's mercy and graciousness; I am not rewarded according to my sins

having my acknowledged sins removed far away from me

fearing the LORD; he pitieth me, and his mercy is from everlasting to everlasting

blessing the LORD
