Psalm 103; Psalm 104; Psalm 105

1 (102-1) <For David himself.> Bless the Lord, O my soul: and let all that is within me bless his holy name. 2 (102-2) Bless the Lord, O my soul, and never forget all he hath done for thee. 3 (102-3) Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases. 4 (102-4) Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion. 5 (102-5) Who satisfieth thy desire with good things: thy youth shall be renewed like the eagle’s. 6 (102-6) The Lord doth mercies, and judgment for all that suffer wrong. 7 (102-7) He hath made his ways known to Moses: his wills to the children of Israel. 8 (102-8) The Lord is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy. 9 (102-9) He will not always be angry: nor will he threaten for ever. 10 (102-10) He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor rewarded 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. 12 (102-12) As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us. 13 (102-13) As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him: 14 (102-14) For he knoweth our frame. He remembereth that we are dust: 15 (102-15) Man’s days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish. 16 (102-16) For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: and he shall know his place 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, 18 (102-18) To such as keep his covenant, And are mindful of his commandments to do them. 19 (102-19) The lord hath prepared his throne in heaven: and his kingdom shall rule over all. 20 (102-20) Bless the Lord, all ye his angels: you that are mighty in strength, and execute his word, hearkening to the voice of his orders. 21 (102-21) Bless the Lord, all ye his hosts: you ministers of his that do his will. 22 (102-22) Bless the Lord, all his works: in every place of his dominion, O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
1 (103-1) <For David himself.> Bless the Lord, O my soul: O Lord my God, thou art exceedingly great. Thou hast put on praise and beauty: 2 (103-2) And art clothed with light as with a garment. Who stretchest out the heaven like a pavilion: 3 (103-3) Who coverest the higher rooms thereof with water. Who makest the clouds thy chariot: who walkest upon the wings of the winds. 4 (103-4) Who makest thy angels spirits: and thy ministers a burning fire. 5 (103-5) Who hast founded the earth upon its own bases: it shall not be moved for ever and ever. 6 (103-6) The deep like a garment is its clothing: above the mountains shall the waters stand. 7 (103-7) At thy rebuke they shall flee: at the voice of thy thunder they shall fear. 8 (103-8) The mountains ascend, and the plains descend into the place which thou hast founded for them. 9 (103-9) Thou hast set a bound which they shall not pass over; neither shall they return to cover the earth. 10 (103-10) Thou sendest forth springs in the vales: between the midst of the hills the waters shall pass. 11 (103-11) All the beasts of the field shall drink: the wild asses shall expect in their thirst. 12 (103-12) Over them the birds of the air shall dwell: from the midst of the rocks they shall give forth their voices. 13 (103-13) Thou waterest the hills from thy upper rooms: the earth shall be filled with the fruit of thy works: 14 (103-14) Bringing forth grass for cattle, and herb for the service of men. That thou mayst bring bread out of the earth: 15 (103-15) And that wine may cheer the heart of man. That he may make the face cheerful with oil: and that bread may strengthen man’s heart. 16 (103-16) The trees of the field shall be filled, and the cedars of Libanus which he hath planted: 17 (103-17) There the sparrows shall make their nests. The highest of them is the house of the heron. 18 (103-18) The high hills are a refuge for the harts, the rock for the irchins. 19 (103-19) He hath made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down. 20 (103-20) Thou hast appointed darkness, and it is night: in it shall all the beasts of the woods go about: 21 (103-21) The young lions roaring after their prey, and seeking their meat from God. 22 (103-22) The sun ariseth, and they are gathered together: and they shall lie down in their dens. 23 (103-23) Man shall go forth to his work, and to his labour until the evening. 24 (103-24) How great are thy works, O Lord? thou hast made all things in wisdom: the earth is filled with thy riches. 25 (103-25) So is this great sea, which stretcheth wide its arms: there are creeping things without number: Creatures little and great. 26 (103-26) There the ships shall go. This sea dragon which thou hast formed to play therein. 27 (103-27) All expect of thee that thou give them food in season. 28 (103-28) What thou givest to them they shall gather up: when thou openest thy hand, they shall all be filled with good. 29 (103-29) But if thou turnest away thy face, they shall be troubled: thou shalt take away their breath, and they shall fail, and shall return to their dust. 30 (103-30) Thou shalt send forth thy spirit, and they shall be created: and thou shalt renew the face of the earth. 31 (103-31) May the glory of the Lord endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works. 32 (103-32) He looketh upon the earth, and maketh it tremble: he troubleth the mountains, and they smoke. 33 (103-33) I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. 34 (103-34) Let my speech be acceptable to him: but I will take delight in the Lord. 35 (103-35) Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and the unjust, so that they be no more: O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
1 (104-1) Give glory to the Lord, and call upon his name: declare his deeds among the Gentiles. 2 (104-2) Sing to him, yea sing praises to him: relate all his wondrous works. 3 (104-3) Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. 4 (104-4) Seek ye the lord, and be strengthened: seek his face evermore. 5 (104-5) Remember his marvellous works which he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth. 6 (104-6) O ye seed of Abraham his servant; ye sons of Jacob his chosen. 7 (104-7) He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth. 8 (104-8) He hath remembered his covenant for ever: the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. 9 (104-9) Which he made to Abraham; and his oath to Isaac: 10 (104-10) And he appointed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting testament: 11 (104-11) Saying: To thee will I give the land of Chanaan, the lot of your inheritance. 12 (104-12) When they were but a small number: yea very few, and sojourners therein: 13 (104-13) And they passed from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people. 14 (104-14) He suffered no man to hurt them: and he reproved kings for their sakes. 15 (104-15) Touch ye not my anointed: and do no evil to my prophets. 16 (104-16) And he called a famine upon the land: and he broke in pieces all the support of bread. 17 (104-17) He sent a man before them: Joseph, who was sold for a slave. 18 (104-18) They humbled his feet in fetters: the iron pierced his soul, 19 (104-19) Until his word came. The word of the Lord inflamed him. 20 (104-20) The king sent, and he released him: the ruler of the people, and he set him at liberty. 21 (104-21) He made him master of his house, and ruler of all his possession. 22 (104-22) That he might instruct his princes as himself, and teach his ancients wisdom. 23 (104-23) And Israel went into Egypt: and Jacob was a sojourner in the land of Cham. 24 (104-24) And he increased his people exceedingly: and strengthened them over their enemies. 25 (104-25) He turned their heart to hate his people: and to deal deceitfully with his servants. 26 (104-26) He sent Moses his servant: Aaron the man whom he had chosen. 27 (104-27) He gave them power to shew them signs, and his wonders in the land of Cham. 28 (104-28) He sent darkness, and made it obscure: and grieved not his words. 29 (104-29) He turned their waters into blood, and destroyed their fish. 30 (104-30) Their land brought forth frogs, in the inner chambers of their kings. 31 (104-31) He spoke, and there came divers sorts of flies and sciniphs in all their coasts. 32 (104-32) He gave them hail for rain, a burning fire in the land. 33 (104-33) And he destroyed their vineyards and their fig trees: and he broke in pieces the trees of their coasts. 34 (104-34) He spoke, and the locust came, and the bruchus, of which there was no number. 35 (104-35) And they devoured all the grass in their land, and consumed all the fruit of their ground. 36 (104-36) And he slew all the firstborn in their land: the firstfruits of all their labour. 37 (104-37) And he brought them out with silver and gold: and there was not among their tribes one that was feeble. 38 (104-38) Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them lay upon them. 39 (104-39) He spread a cloud for their protection, and fire to give them light in the night. 40 (104-40) They asked, and the quail came: and he filled them with the bread of heaven. 41 (104-41) He opened the rock, and waters flowed: rivers ran down in the dry land. 42 (104-42) Because he remembered his holy word, which he had spoken to his servant Abraham. 43 (104-43) And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness. 44 (104-44) And he gave them the lands of the Gentiles: and they possessed the labours of the people: 45 (104-45) That they might observe his justifications, and seek after his law.
