Psalm 103

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

and all that is within me,

bless God’s holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

and forget not all God’s benefits.

God forgives all your sins.

and heals all your infirmities;

God redeems your life from the grave

and crowns you with mercy and loving-kindness;

God satisfies you with good things,

and your youth is renewed like an eagle's.

God executes righteousness and judgment for all who are oppressed.

God made God’s ways known to Moses

and God’s works to the children of Israel.

God is full of compassion and mercy,

slow to anger and of great kindness.

God will not always accuse us,

nor will God keep their anger for ever.

God has not dealt with us

according to our sins,

nor rewarded us according

to our wickedness.

For as the heavens are high above the earth,

so is God’s mercy great upon

those who fear God.

As far as the east is from the west,

so far has God removed our sins from us.

As a parent cares for their children,

so does God care for those who fear God.

For God indeed knows whereof we are made;

God remembers that we are but dust.

Our days are like the grass;

we flourish like a flower of the field;

When the wind goes over it, it is gone,

and its place shall know it no more.

But the merciful goodness of God

endures for ever,

and God’s righteousness on children's children;

On those who keep God’s covenant

and remember God’s commandments

and do them.

God has set the divine throne in heaven,

and GOD’s authority rules overall.
