103 Bless the Lord, my soul, and all that is within me, bless[a] his holy name. 2 Bless the Lord, my soul, and never forget any of his benefits: 3 He continues to forgive all your sins, he continues to heal all your diseases, 4 he continues to redeem your life from the Pit,[b] and he continuously surrounds you with gracious love and compassion. 5 He keeps satisfying you with good things, and he keeps renewing your youth like the eagle’s.
6 The Lord continuously does what is right, executing justice for all who are being oppressed. 7 He revealed his plans[c] to Moses and his deeds to the people of Israel. 8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious, patient,[d] and abundantly rich in gracious love. 9 He does not maintain a dispute[e] continuously or remain angry for all time. 10 He neither deals with us according to our sins, nor repays us equivalent to our iniquity.
11 As high as heaven rises above earth, so his gracious love strengthens[f] those who fear him. 12 As distant as the east is from the west, that is how far he has removed our sins from us. 13 As a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord has compassion for those who fear him. 14 For he knows how we were formed, aware that we were made from dust.
15 A person’s life is like grass— it blossoms like wild flowers, 16 but when the wind blows through it, it withers away and no one remembers where it was. 17 Yet the Lord’s gracious love remains throughout eternity for those who fear him and his righteous acts extend to their children’s children, 18 to those who keep his covenant and to those who remember to observe his precepts. 19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless the Lord, you angels who belong to him, you mighty warriors who carry out his commands, who are obedient to the sound of his words.[g] 21 Bless the Lord, all his heavenly armies, his ministers who do his will. 22 Bless the Lord, all his creation,[h] in all the places of his dominion.
