Praise for the LORD'S Mercies.

1

A Psalm of David.

1 1Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His 2holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And 3forget none * of His benefits;
3 Who 4pardons all your iniquities, Who 5heals all your diseases;
4 Who 6redeems your life from the pit, Who 7crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
5 Who 8satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is 9renewed like the eagle.
6 The LORD 10performs righteous deeds And judgments for all who are 11oppressed.
7 He 12made known His ways to Moses, His 13acts to the sons of Israel.
8 The LORD is 14compassionate and gracious, 15Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9 He 16will not always strive with us, Nor will He 17keep His anger forever.
10 He has 18not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high 19as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He 20removed our transgressions from us.
13 Just 21as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
14 For 22He Himself knows our frame; He 23is mindful that we are but 24dust.
15 As for man, his days are 25like grass; As a 26flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16 When the 27wind has passed over it, it is no more, And its 28place acknowledges it no longer.
17 But the 29lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness 30to children's children,
18 To 31those who keep His covenant And remember His precepts to do them.
19 The LORD has established His 32throne in the heavens, And His 33sovereignty rules over all.
20 Bless the LORD, you 34His angels, 35Mighty in strength, who 36perform His word, 37Obeying the voice of His word!
21 Bless the LORD, all you 38His hosts, You 39who serve Him, doing His will.
22 Bless the LORD, 40all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the LORD, O my soul!
