Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 A psalm of David. (A song of David.) My soul, bless thou the Lord, and all things that be within me, bless his holy name. 1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 My soul, bless thou the Lord; and do not thou forget all the yieldings of him. (My soul, bless thou the Lord; and do not thou forget about all his gifts to thee.) 2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits--
3 Which doeth mercy to all thy wickednesses; which healeth all thy sicknesses. (Who showeth mercy to all thy sins, or all thy wickednesses; who healeth all thy sicknesses.) 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 Which again-buyeth thy life from death; which crowneth thee in mercy and merciful doings. (Who redeemeth thy life from death; who crowneth thee with love and merciful doings.) 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 Which [ful]filleth thy desire in goods; thy youth shall be renewed as the youth of an eagle. (Who fulfilleth thy desires with good things; thy youth shall be renewed like the youth of an eagle.) 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The Lord doing mercies; and doom, to all men suffering wrong. (The Lord giveth mercy, and justice, to all who suffer wrong.) 6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
7 He made his ways known to Moses; his wills to the sons of Israel (his deeds to the Israelites). 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 The Lord is a merciful doer, and merciful in will (The Lord is a giver of love, and a giver of mercy); long abiding, and much merciful. 8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He shall not be wroth [into] without end; and he shall not threaten [into] without end. (He shall not be angry forever; and he shall not threaten forever.) 9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 He did not to us after our sins; neither he yielded to us after our wickednesses. (He did not do to us what we deserved for our sins; nor did he punish us for all our wickednesses.) 10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For by the highness of heaven from earth; he made strong his mercy on men dreading him. (For as high as the heavens be above the earth, is how strong his love is, for those who fear him/for those who revere him.) 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 As much as the east is from the west; he made [a]far our wickednesses 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 hath mercy on his sons, the Lord had mercy on men dreading him; (Like a father hath love for his sons and daughters, so the Lord hath love for those who fear him/for those who revere him;) 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knew our making. He bethought that we be dust (He remembered that we be but dust), 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15 a man is as hay; his day[s] shall flower out so as a flower of the field. (for a person's days be like the hay, or the grass; and he shall flower out like the flowers in the field.) 15 As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 For the spirit shall pass in him, and it shall not abide; and it shall no more know his place. (For the wind passeth over it, and it shall not remain there long; and then its place shall know 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 the Lord is from without beginning, and till into without end; on men dreading him. And his rightfulness is into the sons of sons; (But the Lord's love is without beginning, and without end; for those who fear him/for those who revere him. And his righteousness shall never fail the children of their 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 to them that keep his testament. And be mindful of his commandments; to do those. (yea, they who keep his covenant; and who remember his commandments, and who do them.) 18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
19 The Lord hath made ready his seat in heaven; and his realm shall be lord of all. (The Lord hath prepared his throne in heaven; and he shall rule over all as their King.) 19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Angels of the Lord, bless ye the Lord; ye mighty in virtue, doing his word, to hear the voice of his words. (Angels of the Lord, bless ye the Lord; ye mighty and strong, who do his word, yea, ye who obey him.) 20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
21 All virtues of the Lord, bless ye the Lord; ye ministers of him, that do his will. (All the hosts of the Lord, bless ye the Lord; ye who be his servants, who do his will.) 21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.
22 All works of the Lord, bless ye the Lord, in each place of his lordship (All his creatures, bless ye the Lord, everywhere that he ruleth); my soul, bless thou the Lord. 22 Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
