Psalm 103
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1BY DAVID. Bless, O my soul, YHWH, || And all my inward parts—His Holy Name.

2Bless, O my soul, YHWH, || And do not forget all His benefits,

3Who is forgiving all your iniquities, || Who is healing all your diseases,

4Who is redeeming your life from destruction, || Who is crowning you [with] kindness and mercies,

5Who is satisfying your desire with good, || Your youth renews itself as an eagle.

6YHWH is doing righteousness and judgments || For all the oppressed.

7He makes His ways known to Moses, || His acts to the sons of Israel.

8YHWH [is] merciful and gracious, || Slow to anger, and abundant in mercy.

9He does not strive forever, || Nor does He watch for all time.

10He has not done to us according to our sins, || Nor according to our iniquities || Has He conferred benefits on us.

11For as the height of the heavens [is] above the earth, || His kindness has been mighty over those fearing Him.

12He has put our transgressions far from us—as the distance of east from west.

13As a father has mercy on sons, || YHWH has mercy on those fearing Him.

14For He has known our frame, || Remembering that we [are] dust.

15Mortal man! His days [are] as grass, || He flourishes as a flower of the field;

16For a wind has passed over it, and it is not, || And its place does not discern it anymore.

17And the kindness of YHWH || [Is] from age even to age on those fearing Him, || And His righteousness to sons’ sons,

18To those keeping His covenant, || And to those remembering His precepts to do them.

19YHWH has established His throne in the heavens, || And His kingdom has ruled over all.

20Bless YHWH, you His messengers, || Mighty in power—doing His word, || To listen to the voice of His word.

21Bless YHWH, all you His hosts, || His ministers—doing His pleasure.

22Bless YHWH, all you His works, || In all places of His dominion. Bless, O my soul, YHWH!
