Psalm 103
New American Standard Bible►► 

Praise for the LORD’S Mercies.

A Psalm of David.

1Bless the LORD, my soul,

And all that is within me, bless His holy name.

2Bless the LORD, my soul,

And do not forget any of His benefits;

3Who pardons all your guilt,

Who heals all your diseases;

4Who redeems your life from the pit,

Who crowns you with favor and compassion;

5Who satisfies your [a]years with good things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

6The LORD performs [b]righteous deeds

And judgments for all who are oppressed.

7He made known His ways to Moses,

His deeds to the sons of Israel.

8The LORD is compassionate and gracious,

Slow to anger and abounding in mercy.

9He will not always contend with us,

Nor will He keep His anger forever.

10He has not dealt with us according to our sins,

Nor rewarded us according to our guilty deeds.

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

So great is His mercy toward those who [c]fear Him.

12As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He removed our wrongdoings from us.

13Just as a father has compassion on his children,

So the LORD has compassion on those who [d]fear Him.

14For He Himself knows [e]our form;

He is mindful that we are nothing but dust.

15As for man, his days are like grass;

Like a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

16When the wind has passed over it, it is no more,

And its place no longer knows about it.

17But the [f]mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting for those who [g]fear Him,

And His justice to the children’s children,

18To those who keep His covenant

And remember His precepts, so as to do them.

19The LORD has established His throne in the heavens,

And His [h]sovereignty rules over [i]all.

20Bless the LORD, you His angels,

Mighty in strength, who perform His word,

Obeying the voice of His word!

21Bless the LORD, all you His [j]angels,

You who serve Him, doing His will.

22Bless the LORD, all you works of His,

In all places of His dominion;

Bless the LORD, my soul!
