12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions(A) from us.

13 As a father has compassion(B) on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,(C)
    he remembers that we are dust.(D)
15 The life of mortals is like grass,(E)
    they flourish like a flower(F) of the field;
16 the wind blows(G) over it and it is gone,
    and its place(H) remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children’s children(I)
18 with those who keep his covenant(J)
    and remember(K) to obey his precepts.(L)

19 The Lord has established his throne(M) in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules(N) over all.

20 Praise the Lord,(O) you his angels,(P)
    you mighty ones(Q) who do his bidding,(R)
    who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,(S)
    you his servants(T) who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works(U)
    everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul.(V)
