Psalm 103:1–12

 

1Bless the Lord, | O my soul,*

         and all that is within me,

         bless his | holy name!

 

2Bless the Lord, | O my soul,*

         and forget not all his | benefits,

 

3who forgives all your in- | iquity,*

         who heals all your dis- | eases,

 

4who redeems your life | from the pit,*

         who crowns you with steadfast love and | mercy,

 

5who satisfies | you with good*

         so that your youth is renewed like the | eagle’s.

 

6The Lord works | righteousness*

         and justice for all who | are oppressed.

 

7He made known his ways to | Moses,*

         his acts to the people of | Israel.

 

8The Lord is merciful and | gracious,*

         slow to anger and abounding in | steadfast love.

 

9He will not | always chide,*

         nor will he keep his anger for- | ever.

 

10He does not deal with us according | to our sins,*

         nor repay us according to our in- | iquities.

 

11For as high as the heavens are a- | bove the earth,*

         so great is his steadfast love toward those who | fear him;

 

12as far as the east is | from the west,*

         so far does he remove our transgres- | sions from us.
