2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:2My soul, praise the LORD, and do not forget all His benefits.
3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;3He forgives all your sin; He heals all your diseases.
4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;4He redeems your life from the Pit; He crowns you with faithful love and compassion.
5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.5He satisfies you with goodness; your youth is renewed like the eagle.

10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.10He has not dealt with us as our sins deserve or repaid us according to our offenses.
11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.11For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His faithful love toward those who fear Him.
12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.12As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.13As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.14For He knows what we are made of, remembering that we are dust.

17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;17But from eternity to eternity the LORD's faithful love is toward those who fear Him, and His righteousness toward the grandchildren
18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.18of those who keep His covenant, who remember to observe His precepts.
19The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.19The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all.
20Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.20Praise the LORD, all His angels of great strength, who do His word, obedient to His command.
21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.21Praise the LORD, all His armies, His servants who do His will.
22Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.22Praise the LORD, all His works in all the places where He rules. My soul, praise Yahweh!
