|A Psalm of David.|
|1||Bless Yahweh, O my soul; |
and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
|God is Love.|
|2||Bless Yahweh, O my soul, |
and forget not all his benefits,
|3||who forgives all your iniquity, |
who heals all your diseases,
|4||who redeems your life from the Pit, |
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
|5||who satisfies you with good as long as you live |
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
|6||Yahweh works vindication |
and justice for all who are oppressed.
|7||He made known his ways to Moses, |
his acts to the people of Israel.
|8||Yahweh is merciful and gracious, |
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
|9||He will not always chide, |
nor will he keep his anger for ever.
|10||He does not deal with us according to our sins, |
nor requite us according to our iniquities.
|11||For as the heavens are high above the earth, |
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
|12||as far as the east is from the west, |
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
|13||As a father pities his children, |
so Yahweh pities those who fear him.
|14||For he knows our frame; |
he remembers that we are dust.
|15||As for man, his days are like grass; |
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
|16||for the wind passes over it, |
and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.
|17||But the steadfast love of Yahweh |
is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children's children,
|18||to those who keep his covenant |
and remember to do his commandments.
|19||Yahweh has established his throne in the heavens, |
and his kingdom rules over all.
|20||Bless Yahweh, O you his angels, |
you mighty ones who do his word,
hearkening to the voice of his word!
|21||Bless Yahweh, all his hosts, |
his ministers that do his will!
|22||Bless Yahweh, all his works,|
in all places of his dominion.
Bless Yahweh, O my soul!
