A Psalm of David.

1Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless the name of his holiness. 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3Who forgives all thine iniquities; who heals all thy diseases; 4who redeems thy life from destruction; who crowns thee with mercy and compassion; 5who satisfies thy mouth with good things so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6The LORD executes righteousness and justice unto all that suffer violence. 7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the sons of Israel. 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. 9He will not always chide, neither will he keep his anger for ever. 10He has not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. 11For as the heavens are high above the earth so does he increase his mercy over those that fear him. 12As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our rebellions from us. 13Like as a father has mercy upon his children, so the LORD has mercy upon those that fear him. 14For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. 15As for man, his days are as grass; as an open flower of the field, so he blossoms. 16For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place shall know it no more. 17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those that fear him, and his righteousness unto the children’s children, 18to such as keep his covenant and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

19The LORD has prepared his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. 20Bless the LORD, ye his angels, valiant and strong, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. 21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts, ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. 22Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
