Psalm 103 1Of David. Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

2Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—

3who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,

4who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,

5who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.

7He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:

8The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.

9He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;

10he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.

11For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;

12as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
