An exhortation to bless God for his mercy,
Psalms 103:1 Blesse God O my soule: and all that is within me [prayse] his holy name. Psalms 103:2 Blesse God O my soule: and forget not all his benefites. Psalms 103:3 Who forgeueth all thy wickednesse: and healeth all thine infirmities. Psalms 103:4 Who redeemeth thy lyfe from destruction: [and] crowneth thee with mercie and louyng kyndnesse. Psalms 103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good thynges: causyng thy youth lyke an Egles to be renued. Psalms 103:6 God executeth iustice and iudgement: for all them that are oppressed with wrong. Psalms 103:7 He made his wayes knowen vnto Moyses: his workes vnto the children of Israel. Psalms 103:8 God is full of compassion and pitie: loth to be angry, and exceedyng great in mercie. Psalms 103:9 He vseth not to continue in chydyng: neither reserueth he [his anger] for euer. Psalms 103:10 He dealeth not with vs accordyng to our sinnes: nor rewardeth vs according to our wickednesse. Psalms 103:11 For accordyng to the hyghnesse of heauen aboue the earth: his mercie preuayleth to them that feare hym. Psalms 103:12 [Loke] howe farre distaunt the east is from the west: so farre a sunder setteth he our sinnes from vs. Psalms 103:13 Yea lyke as a father pitieth [his owne] children: euen so is God mercifull vnto them that feare hym. Psalms 103:14 For he knoweth wherof we be made: he remembreth that we are but dust.
and for the constancy thereof.
Psalms 103:15 The dayes of man are as [the dayes] of an hearbe: he florisheth as a flowre in the fielde. Psalms 103:16 For the winde passeth ouer it, and it is no more [seene]: and the place therof knoweth it no more. Psalms 103:17 But the mercifull goodnesse of God endureth for euer and euer, vpon them that feare hym: and his righteousnesse vpon childers children. Psalms 103:18 Euen vpon such as kepe his couenaunt: and thinke vpon his commaundementes to do them. Psalms 103:19 God hath prepared his seate in heauen: and his kyngdome ruleth ouer all. Psalms 103:20 Blesse God O ye his angels mightie in operation: who fulfyll his worde in hearkening vnto the voyce of his word. Psalms 103:21 Blesse God all ye his hoastes: you his ministers that do his pleasure. Psalms 103:22 Blesse God all you his workes in all places of his dominion: O my soule blesse thou God.
