An exhortation to bless God for his mercy,
Psalms 103:1 Bless, O my soul, Yahweh,And all that is within me, his holy Name; Psalms 103:2 Bless, O my soul, Yahweh, And forget not all his dealings: Psalms 103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquity, Who healeth all thy diseases; Psalms 103:4 Who redeemeth, from destruction, thy life, Who crowneth thee, with lovingkindness and compassion: Psalms 103:5 Who satisfieth, with good, thine age, Thy youth, reneweth itself like an eagle. Psalms 103:6 Yahweh is one, who executeth righteousness, Yea vindication for all the oppressed. Psalms 103:7 Who made known his ways unto Moses, unto the sons of Israel, his doings. Psalms 103:8 Compassionate and gracious, is Yahweh,Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness. Psalms 103:9 Not perpetually, will he contend, Nor age-abidingly, retain anger; Psalms 103:10 Not according to our sins, hath he dealt with us, Nor according to our iniquities, hath he treated us. Psalms 103:11 For, as the heavens are exalted over the earth, His lovingkindness hath prevailed over them who revere him; Psalms 103:12 As far as East from West, Hath he put far from us, our transgressions; Psalms 103:13 Like the compassion of a father for his children, Is, the compassion of Yahweh, for them who revere him; Psalms 103:14 For, he, knoweth how we are formed, He is mindful that, dust, we are.
and for the constancy thereof.
Psalms 103:15 As for man, like grass, are his days, Like the blossom of the field, so, doth he blossom; Psalms 103:16 For, a wind, hath passed over it, and it is gone, And its own place is acquainted with it no more. Psalms 103:17 But, the lovingkindness of Yahweh, is from one age even to another, Upon them who revere him, And his righteousness, to children's children: Psalms 103:18 To such as keep his covenant, And remember his precepts, to do them. Psalms 103:19 Yahweh, in the heavens, hath established his throne, And, his kingdom, over all, hath dominion. Psalms 103:20 Bless Yahweh, ye messengers of his,Heroes of vigour, doing his word, To hearken [again] to the voice of his word; Psalms 103:21 Bless Yahweh, all ye his hosts, Attendants of his, doing his pleasure; Psalms 103:22 Bless Yahweh, all ye his works, In all places of his dominion, Bless, O my soul, Yahweh.
