1 By David: Bless ADONAI, my soul! Everything in me, bless his holy name! 1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Bless ADONAI, my soul, and forget none of his benefits! 2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits--
3 He forgives all your offenses, he heals all your diseases, 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 he redeems your life from the pit, he surrounds you with grace and compassion, 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 he contents you with good as long as you live, so that your youth is renewed like an eagle's. 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 ADONAI brings vindication and justice to all who are oppressed. 6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
7 He made his ways known to Moshe, his mighty deeds to the people of Isra'el. 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 ADONAI is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in grace. 8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse, he will not keep his anger forever. 9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 He has not treated us as our sins deserve or paid us back for our offenses, 10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 because his mercy toward those who fear him is as far above earth as heaven. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 He has removed our sins from us as far as the east is from the west. 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Just as a father has compassion on his children, ADONAI has compassion on those who fear him. 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 For he understands how we are made, he remembers that we are dust. 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15 Yes, a human being's days are like grass, he sprouts like a flower in the countryside - 15 As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 but when the wind sweeps over, it's gone; and its place knows it no more. 16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
17 But the mercy of ADONAI on those who fear him is from eternity past to eternity future, and his righteousness extends to his children's children, 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 provided they keep his covenant and remember to follow his precepts. 18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
19 ADONAI has established his throne in heaven; his kingly power rules everything. 19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless ADONAI, you angels of his, you mighty warriors who obey his word, who carry out his orders! 20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
21 Bless ADONAI, all his troops, who serve him and do what he wants! 21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.
22 Bless ADONAI, all his works, in every place where he rules! Bless ADONAI, my soul! 22 Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
