An exhortation to bless God for his mercy, and for the constancy thereof.
0 a Psalm of David.
1 Bless the 1Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and 1forget not all his benefits:
3 Who 1forgiveth all thine iniquities; who 2healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who 1redeemeth thy life from destruction; who 2crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who 1satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that 2thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The 1Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He 1made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 The 1Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He 1will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He 1hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For aas the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward 1them that fear him.
12 As 1far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like 1as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.
14 For 1he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
15 as for 1man, his days are as 2grass: 3as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16 For 1the wind passeth over it, and ait is gone; and the place thereof 2shall know it no more.
17 But 1the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and 2his righteousness unto children's children;
18 To 1such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
19 The 1Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
20 1Bless the Lord, ye his angels, athat excel in strength, that 2do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21 Bless ye the Lord, all ye 1his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
22 1Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: 2bless the Lord, O my soul.
