Of David. 103 Let me* praise Jehovah;Let everything within me praise his holy name. 2 Let me* praise Jehovah;May I never forget all that he has done.+ 3 He forgives all your errors+And heals all your ailments;+ 4 He reclaims your life from the pit*+And crowns you with his loyal love and mercy.+ 5 He satisfies you with good things+ all your life,So that your youth is renewed like that of an eagle.+ 6 Jehovah acts with righteousness+ and justiceFor all who are oppressed.+ 7 He made known his ways to Moses,+His deeds to the sons of Israel.+ 8 Jehovah is merciful and compassionate,*+Slow to anger and abundant in loyal love.*+ 9 He will not always find fault,+Nor will he stay resentful forever.+ 10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,+Nor has he repaid us what our errors deserve.+ 11 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,So great is his loyal love toward those who fear him.+ 12 As far off as the sunrise is from the sunset,So far off from us he has put our transgressions.+ 13 As a father shows mercy to his sons,Jehovah has shown mercy to those who fear him.+ 14 For he well knows how we are formed,+Remembering that we are dust.+ 15 As for mortal man, his days are like those of grass;+He blooms like a blossom of the field.+ 16 But when a wind blows, it is no more,As though it was never there.* 17 But the loyal love of Jehovah is for all eternity*Toward those who fear him,+And his righteousness toward their children’s children,+ 18 Toward those who keep his covenant+And those who are careful to observe his orders. 19 Jehovah has firmly established his throne in the heavens;+And his kingship rules over everything.+ 20 Praise Jehovah, all you his angels,+ mighty in power,Who carry out his word,+ obeying his voice.* 21 Praise Jehovah, all his armies,+His ministers who do his will.+ 22 Praise Jehovah, all his works,In all the places where he rules.* Let my whole being* praise Jehovah.
