Psalm 103
King James BibleInternational Standard Version
1A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.1Bless the LORD, my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:2Bless the LORD, my soul, and never forget any of his benefits:
3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;3He continues to forgive all your sins, he continues to heal all your diseases,
4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;4he continues to redeem your life from the Pit, and he continuously surrounds you with gracious love and compassion.
5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.5He keeps satisfying you with good things, and he keeps renewing your youth like the eagle's.
6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.6The LORD continuously does what is right, executing justice for all who are being oppressed.
7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.7He revealed his plans to Moses and his deeds to the people of Israel.
8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.8The LORD is compassionate and gracious, patient, and abundantly rich in gracious love.
9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.9He does not maintain a dispute continuously or remain angry for all time.
10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.10He neither deals with us according to our sins, nor repays us equivalent to our iniquity.
11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.11As high as heaven rises above earth, so his gracious love strengthens those who fear him.
12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.12As distant as the east is from the west, that is how far he has removed our sins from us.
13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.13As a father has compassion for his children, so the LORD has compassion for those who fear him.
14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.14For he knows how we were formed, aware that we were made from dust.
15As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.15A person's life is like grass— it blossoms like wild flowers,
16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.16but when the wind blows through it, it withers away and no one remembers where it was.
17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;17Yet the LORD's gracious love remains throughout eternity for those who fear him and his righteous acts extend to their children's children,
18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.18to those who keep his covenant and to those 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.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.
21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.21Bless the LORD, all his heavenly armies, his ministers who do his will.
22Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.22Bless the LORD, all his creation, in all the places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, my soul.
