Psalm 103
New Living TranslationEnglish Standard Version
1Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.1Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
2Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,
3He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
4He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.4who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!5who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6The LORD gives righteousness and justice to all who are treated unfairly.6The LORD works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.
7He revealed his character to Moses and his deeds to the people of Israel.7He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel.
8The LORD is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever.9He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever.
10He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.10He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.11For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.12as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
13The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.13As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.
14For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.14For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
15Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.15As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16The wind blows, and we are gone— as though we had never been here.16for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.
17But the love of the LORD remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children,
18of those who are faithful to his covenant, of those who obey his commandments!18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.
19The LORD has made the heavens his throne; from there he rules over everything.19The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.
20Praise the LORD, you angels, you mighty ones who carry out his plans, listening for each of his commands.20Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!
21Yes, praise the LORD, you armies of angels who serve him and do his will!21Bless the LORD, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will!
22Praise the LORD, everything he has created, everything in all his kingdom. Let all that I am praise the LORD.22Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!
