Psalm 103:1–13

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.

13As a father shows compassion to his | children,*

so the LORD shows compassion to those who | fear him.
