Psalm 103
King James BibleNew International Version
1A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.1Of David. Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:2Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits--
3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;3who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;4who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.5who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.6The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.7He made known his ways to Moses, 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, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.9He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.10he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
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 love for 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 how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.15The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field;
16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.16the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
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 everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children--
18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.18with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey 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, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.21Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you 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 everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, my soul.
