3 (102-3) Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases. 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 (102-4) Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion. 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 (102-5) Who satisfieth thy desire with good things: thy youth shall be renewed like the eagle’s. 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

8 (102-8) The Lord is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy. 8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 (102-9) He will not always be angry: nor will he threaten for ever. 9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 (102-10) He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. 10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 (102-11) For according to the height of the heaven above the earth: he hath strengthened his mercy towards them that fear him. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 (102-12) As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us. 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 (102-13) As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him: 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 (102-14) For he knoweth our frame. He remembereth that we are dust: 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15 (102-15) Man’s days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish. 15 As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 (102-16) For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: and he shall know his place no more. 16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
17 (102-17) But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity and unto eternity upon them that fear him: And his justice unto 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 (102-18) To such as keep his covenant, And are mindful of his commandments to do them. 18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
