1For David himself.
Bless the Lord, O my soul: and let all that is within me bless his holy name. 2Bless the Lord, O my soul, and never forget all he hath done for thee. 3Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases. 4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion. 5Who satisfieth thy desire with good things: thy youth shall be renewed like the eagle's. 6The Lord doth mercies, and judgment for all that suffer wrong. 7He hath made his ways known to Moses: his wills to the children of Israel. 8The ford is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy. 9He will not always be angry: nor will he threaten for ever. 10He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. 11For according to the height of the heaven above the earth: he hath strengthened his mercy towards them that fear him. 12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us. 13As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him: 14for he knoweth our frame. He remembereth that we are dust: 15man's days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish. 16For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: and he shall know his place no more. 17But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity and unto eternity upon them that fear him: And his justice unto children's children, 18to such as keep his covenant, And are mindful of his commandments to do them. 19The Lord hath prepared his throne in heaven: and his kingdom shall rule over all. 20Bless the Lord, all ye his angels: you that are mighty in strength, and execute his word, hearkening to the voice of his orders. 21Bless the Lord, all ye his hosts: you ministers of his that do his will. 22Bless the Lord, all his works: in every place of his dominion, O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
