y Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 y Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and z forget not all his benefits,
3 who a forgives all your iniquity,
who b heals all your diseases,
4 who c redeems your life from the pit,
who d crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who e satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like f the eagle's.
The Lord works g righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his h ways to Moses,
his i acts to the people of Israel.
8 The Lord is j merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 k He will not always chide,
nor will he l keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us m according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For n as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his o steadfast love toward p those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he q remove our transgressions from us.
13 As r a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion p to those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame; 1
he s remembers that we are dust.
As for man, his days are like t grass;
he flourishes like u a flower of the field;
16 for v the wind passes over it, and w it is gone,
and x its place knows it no more.
17 But y the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on p those who fear him,
and his righteousness to z children's children,
18 to those who a keep his covenant
and b remember to do his commandments.
19 The Lord has c established his throne in the heavens,
and his d kingdom rules over all.
Bless the Lord, O you e his angels,
you f mighty ones who g do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!
21 Bless the Lord, all his h hosts,
his i ministers, who do his will!
22 j Bless the Lord, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
k Bless the Lord, O my soul!
