Psalm 103-104

Psalm 103

Of David.

Praise the Lord,(A) my soul;(B)
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.(C)
Praise the Lord,(D) my soul,
and forget not(E) all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins(F)
and heals(G) all your diseases,
who redeems your life(H) from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,(I)
who satisfies(J) your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed(K) like the eagle’s.(L)

The Lord works righteousness(M)
and justice for all the oppressed.(N)

He made known(O) his ways(P) to Moses,
his deeds(Q) to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,(R)
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;(S)
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve(T)
or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love(U) for those who fear him;(V)
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions(W) from us.

13 As a father has compassion(X) on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,(Y)
he remembers that we are dust.(Z)
15 The life of mortals is like grass,(AA)
they flourish like a flower(AB) of the field;
16 the wind blows(AC) over it and it is gone,
and its place(AD) 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(AE)
18 with those who keep his covenant(AF)
and remember(AG) to obey his precepts.(AH)

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

20 Praise the Lord,(AK) you his angels,(AL)
you mighty ones(AM) who do his bidding,(AN)
who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,(AO)
you his servants(AP) who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works(AQ)
everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul.(AR)

Psalm 104

Praise the Lord, my soul.(AS)

Lord my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty.(AT)

The Lord wraps(AU) himself in light(AV) as with a garment;
he stretches(AW) out the heavens(AX) like a tent(AY)
and lays the beams(AZ) of his upper chambers on their waters.(BA)
He makes the clouds(BB) his chariot(BC)
and rides on the wings of the wind.(BD)
He makes winds his messengers,[a](BE)
flames of fire(BF) his servants.

He set the earth(BG) on its foundations;(BH)
it can never be moved.
You covered it(BI) with the watery depths(BJ) as with a garment;
the waters stood(BK) above the mountains.
But at your rebuke(BL) the waters fled,
at the sound of your thunder(BM) they took to flight;
they flowed over the mountains,
they went down into the valleys,
to the place you assigned(BN) for them.
You set a boundary(BO) they cannot cross;
never again will they cover the earth.

10 He makes springs(BP) pour water into the ravines;
it flows between the mountains.
11 They give water(BQ) to all the beasts of the field;
the wild donkeys(BR) quench their thirst.
12 The birds of the sky(BS) nest by the waters;
they sing among the branches.(BT)
13 He waters the mountains(BU) from his upper chambers;(BV)
the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work.(BW)
14 He makes grass grow(BX) for the cattle,
and plants for people to cultivate—
bringing forth food(BY) from the earth:
15 wine(BZ) that gladdens human hearts,
oil(CA) to make their faces shine,
and bread that sustains(CB) their hearts.
16 The trees of the Lord(CC) are well watered,
the cedars of Lebanon(CD) that he planted.
17 There the birds(CE) make their nests;
the stork has its home in the junipers.
18 The high mountains belong to the wild goats;(CF)
the crags are a refuge for the hyrax.(CG)

19 He made the moon to mark the seasons,(CH)
and the sun(CI) knows when to go down.
20 You bring darkness,(CJ) it becomes night,(CK)
and all the beasts of the forest(CL) prowl.
21 The lions roar for their prey(CM)
and seek their food from God.(CN)
22 The sun rises, and they steal away;
they return and lie down in their dens.(CO)
23 Then people go out to their work,(CP)
to their labor until evening.(CQ)

24 How many are your works,(CR) Lord!
In wisdom you made(CS) them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.(CT)
25 There is the sea,(CU) vast and spacious,
teeming with creatures beyond number—
living things both large and small.(CV)
26 There the ships(CW) go to and fro,
and Leviathan,(CX) which you formed to frolic(CY) there.(CZ)

27 All creatures look to you
to give them their food(DA) at the proper time.
28 When you give it to them,
they gather it up;
when you open your hand,
they are satisfied(DB) with good things.
29 When you hide your face,(DC)
they are terrified;
when you take away their breath,
they die and return to the dust.(DD)
30 When you send your Spirit,(DE)
they are created,
and you renew the face of the ground.

31 May the glory of the Lord(DF) endure forever;
may the Lord rejoice in his works(DG)
32 he who looks at the earth, and it trembles,(DH)
who touches the mountains,(DI) and they smoke.(DJ)

33 I will sing(DK) to the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
34 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
as I rejoice(DL) in the Lord.
35 But may sinners vanish(DM) from the earth
and the wicked be no more.(DN)

Praise the Lord, my soul.

Praise the Lord.[b](DO)

1 Corinthians 2

And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom(A) as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a] For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.(B) I came to you(C) in weakness(D) with great fear and trembling.(E) My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words,(F) but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power,(G) so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.(H)

God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit

We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature,(I) but not the wisdom of this age(J) or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.(K) No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery(L) that has been hidden(M) and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age(N) understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.(O) However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”[b]
the things God has prepared for those who love him—(P)

10 these are the things God has revealed(Q) to us by his Spirit.(R)

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts(S) except their own spirit(T) within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 What we have received is not the spirit(U) of the world,(V) but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom(W) but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.[c] 14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God(X) but considers them foolishness,(Y) and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15 The person with the Spirit(Z) makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for,

“Who has known the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?”[d](AA)

But we have the mind of Christ.(AB)
