Psalm 103

Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits -
who forgives all your sins
and heals your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies you desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.

The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
not will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve,
or repay us according to our iniquites.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him. . .
Praise the LORD, O my soul!

vs. 1-5, 8-13
