2 Give praise to the Lord, O my soul; let not all his blessings go from your memory. 2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits--
3 He has forgiveness for all your sins; he takes away all your diseases; 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 He keeps back your life from destruction, crowning you with mercy and grace. 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 He makes your mouth full of good things, so that your strength is made new again like the eagle's. 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The Lord gives decisions in righteousness for all who are in trouble. 6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
7 He gave knowledge of his way to Moses, and made his acts clear to the children of Israel. 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 The Lord is kind and full of pity, not quickly made angry, but ever ready to have mercy. 8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 His feeling will no longer be bitter; he will not keep his wrath for ever. 9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 He has not given us the punishment for our sins, or the reward of our wrongdoing. 10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high over the earth, so great is his mercy to his worshippers. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he put our sins from us. 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father has pity on his children, so the Lord has pity on his worshippers. 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 For he has knowledge of our feeble frame; he sees that we are only dust. 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass: his beautiful growth is like the flower of the field. 15 As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 The wind goes over it and it is gone; and its place sees it no longer. 16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
17 But the mercy of the Lord is eternal for his worshippers, and their children's children will see his righteousness; 17 But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children--
18 If they keep his agreement, and have his laws in mind to do them. 18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
19 The Lord has made ready his high seat in the heavens; his kingdom is ruling over all. 19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Give praise to the Lord, you his angels, who are great in strength, doing his orders, and waiting for his voice. 20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
21 Give praise to the Lord, all you his armies; and you his servants who do his pleasure. 21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.
22 Give praise to the Lord, all his works, in all places under his rule: give praise to the Lord, O my soul. 22 Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
