1Barachi (Bless) Hashem, O my nefesh; and all that is within me, bless His Shem kodesh. 2Barachi Hashem, O my nefesh, and forget not all His gmulim (benefits); 3Who forgiveth all thine avonim (iniquities); Who healeth all thy diseases; 4Who is the Go'el (Redeemer) of thy life from shachat (corruption, pit, grave); Who crowneth thee with chesed and rachamim; 5Who satisfieth thy mouth with tov; so that thy ne'urim is made chadash like the nesher. 6Hashem executeth tzedakot and mishpatim for all that are oppressed. 7He made known His drakhim unto Moshe, His deeds unto the Bnei Yisroel. 8Hashem is rachum and channun, slow to anger, and plenteous in chesed. 9He will not strive l'netzach; neither will He keep His anger l'olam. 10He hath not dealt with us according to chata'einu (our sins); nor repaid us according to avonoteinu (our iniquities). 11For as Shomayim is high above ha'aretz, so great is His chesed toward them that fear Him. 12As far as the mizrach (east) is from the ma'arav (west), so far hath He removed peysha'einu (our transgressions) from us. 13As an av has compassion on banim so Hashem has compassion on them that fear Him. 14For He has da'as of yitzreinu (our nature); He remembereth that aphar anachnu (dust we are). 15As for enosh (mankind), his yamim are like khatzir (green grass, herbage); like tzitz hasadeh (a flower of the field), so he flourisheth. 16For the ruach (wind) passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall remember it no more. 17But the chesed Hashem is me'olam v'ad olam (from everlasting to everlasting) upon them that fear Him, and His tzedakah unto bnei banim; 18To such as are shomer over His Brit, and to those that remember His precepts to do them. 19Hashem hath established His kisse (throne) in Shomayim; and His malchut ruleth over all. 20Barachu Hashem, ye His malachim, gibborei ko'ach (mighty ones of power), that do His bidding, paying heed unto the voice of His Davar. 21Barachu Hashem, all ye His Tzivos; ye mesharetim (ministers) of His, that do His ratzon (will). 22Barachu Hashem, all His ma'asim in all places of His memshalet (dominion); Barachi Hashem, O my nefesh.
