Psalm 103

103
Bless the Lord, O My Soul
Of David.
1 # ver. 22; Ps. 104:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 # [See ver. 1 above] Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and #Deut. 6:12; 8:11forget not all his benefits,
3who #Ex. 34:7; Isa. 33:24; Matt. 9:2; Mark 2:5; [Luke 7:47] forgives all your iniquity,
who #Ps. 107:20; 147:3; Ex. 15:26; [Matt. 8:17]heals all your diseases,
4who #See Ps. 56:13 redeems your life from the pit,
who #[Ps. 5:12]crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5who #Ps. 107:9 satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like #Isa. 40:31the eagle’s.
6The Lord works #Ps. 146:7righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
7He made known his #Ex. 33:13; [Ps. 25:4] ways to Moses,
his #[Ps. 78:11; Ex. 34:10]acts to the people of Israel.
8The Lord is #See Ps. 86:15merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 # Isa. 57:16 He will not always chide,
nor will he #Ps. 30:5; Jer. 3:5, 12; Mic. 7:18keep his anger forever.
10He does not deal with us #Ezra 9:13according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11For #See Ps. 36:5 as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his #Ps. 117:2 steadfast love toward #ver. 13, 17; Luke 1:50those who fear him;
12as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he #[Isa. 38:17; 43:25; Mic. 7:19]remove our transgressions from us.
13As #Mal. 3:17 a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion #[See ver. 11 above]to those who fear him.
14For he knows our frame;#103:14 Or knows how we are formed
he #Ps. 78:39remembers that we are dust.
15As for man, his days are like #Ps. 90:5 grass;
he flourishes like #See Job 14:2a flower of the field;
16for #Isa. 40:7 the wind passes over it, and #Ps. 37:36 it is gone,
and #See Job 7:10its place knows it no more.
17But #Ps. 25:6 the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on #[See ver. 11 above] those who fear him,
and his righteousness to #Ex. 20:5, 6children’s children,
18to those who #Deut. 7:9 keep his covenant
and #Ps. 19:8remember to do his commandments.
19The Lord has #Ps. 11:4; 93:2 established his throne in the heavens,
and his #Ps. 47:2; Dan. 4:17kingdom rules over all.
20Bless the Lord, O you #Ps. 148:2; [Luke 2:13] his angels,
you #Ps. 78:25 mighty ones who #Matt. 6:10do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!
21Bless the Lord, all his #Gen. 32:2; Josh. 5:14; 1 Kgs. 22:19 hosts,
his #Ps. 104:4; Dan. 7:10; Heb. 1:14ministers, who do his will!
22 # Ps. 145:10 Bless the Lord, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
# ver. 1, 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul!
