Psalm 103
King James BibleNew Living Translation
1A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.1Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:2Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.
3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;3He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;4He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.5He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.6The LORD gives righteousness and justice to all who are treated unfairly.
7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.7He revealed his character 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 merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.9He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever.
10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.10He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.11For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.12He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.
13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.13The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.14For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.
15As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.15Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.16The wind blows, and we are gone— as though we had never been here.
17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;17But the love of the LORD remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children
18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.18of those who are faithful to his covenant, of those who obey his commandments!
19The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.19The LORD has made the heavens his throne; from there he rules over everything.
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 angels, you mighty ones who carry out his plans, listening for each of his commands.
21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.21Yes, praise the LORD, you armies of angels who serve him and do his will!
22Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.22Praise the LORD, everything he has created, everything in all his kingdom. Let all that I am praise the LORD.
