Psalm 103. Benedic, anima mea.
PRAISE the LORD, O my soul; * and all that is within me, praise
his holy Name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, * and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thy sin, * and healeth all thine infirmities;
4 Who saveth thy life from destruction, * and crowneth thee with
mercy and loving-kindness;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, * making thee young
and lusty as an eagle.
6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment * for all them
that are oppressed with wrong.
7 He showed his ways unto Moses, * his works unto the children
8 The LORD is full of compassion and mercy, * longsuffering,
and of great goodness.
9 He will not alway be chiding; * neither keepeth he his anger
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; * nor rewarded us
according to our wickednesses.
11 For look how high the heaven is in comparison of the earth;
* so great is his mercy also toward them that fear him.
12 Look how wide also the east is from the west; * so far hath
he set our sins from us.
13 Yea, like as a father pitieth his own children; * even so
is the LORD merciful unto them that fear him.
14 For he knoweth whereof we are made; * he remembereth that
we are but dust.
15 The days of man are but as grass; * for he flourisheth as
a flower of the field.
16 For as soon as the wind goeth over it, it is gone; * and the
place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the merciful goodness of the LORD endureth for ever and
ever upon them that fear him; * and his righteousness upon children's
18 Even upon such as keep his covenant, * and think upon his
commandments to do them.
19 The LORD hath prepared his seat in heaven, * and his kingdom
ruleth over all.
20 O praise the LORD, ye angels of his, ye that excel in strength;
* ye that fulfil his commandment, and hearken unto the voice
of his word.
21 O praise the LORD, all ye his hosts; * ye servants of his
that do his pleasure.
22 O speak good of the LORD, all ye works of his, in all places
of his dominion: * praise thou the LORD, O my soul.
