Psalm 103
International Standard VersionNew American Standard Bible 1995
1Bless the LORD, my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.1A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
2Bless the LORD, my soul, and never forget any of his benefits:2Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits;
3He continues to forgive all your sins, he continues to heal all your diseases,3Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases;
4he continues to redeem your life from the Pit, and he continuously surrounds you with gracious love and compassion.4Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
5He keeps satisfying you with good things, and he keeps renewing your youth like the eagle's.5Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
6The LORD continuously does what is right, executing justice for all who are being oppressed.6The LORD performs righteous deeds And judgments for all who are oppressed.
7He revealed his plans to Moses and his deeds to the people of Israel.7He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel.
8The LORD is compassionate and gracious, patient, and abundantly rich in gracious love.8The LORD is compassionate and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9He does not maintain a dispute continuously or remain angry for all time.9He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.
10He neither deals with us according to our sins, nor repays us equivalent to our iniquity.10He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11As high as heaven rises above earth, so his gracious love strengthens those who fear him.11For as high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
12As distant as the east is from the west, that is how far he has removed our sins from us.12As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13As a father has compassion for his children, so the LORD has compassion for those who fear him.13Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
14For he knows how we were formed, aware that we were made from dust.14For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.
15A person's life is like grass— it blossoms like wild flowers,15As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16but when the wind blows through it, it withers away and no one remembers where it was.16When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, And its place acknowledges it no longer.
17Yet the LORD's gracious love remains throughout eternity for those who fear him and his righteous acts extend to their children's children,17But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children's children,
18to those who keep his covenant and to those who remember to observe his precepts.18To those who keep His covenant And remember His precepts to do them.
19The LORD has established his throne in heaven and his kingdom rules over all.19The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.
20Bless the LORD, you angels who belong to him, you mighty warriors who carry out his commands, who are obedient to the sound of his words. 20Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!
21Bless the LORD, all his heavenly armies, his ministers who do his will.21Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You who serve Him, doing His will.
22Bless the LORD, all his creation, in all the places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, my soul.22Bless the LORD, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the LORD, O my soul!
