Psalm 103 Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 103

A Psalm of David.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and forget not all His benefits,
who forgives all your iniquities,
    who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
    who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
who satisfies your mouth with good things,
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord does righteousness
    and justice for all who are oppressed.

He made known His ways to Moses,
    His acts to the people of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious,
    slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
He will not always accuse,
    neither will He keep his anger forever.
10 He does not treat us according to our sins,
    nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
    so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like a father shows compassion to his children,
    so the Lord gives compassion to those who fear Him.
14 For He knows how we are formed;
    He remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass;
    as a flower of the field he flourishes.
16 For the hot wind passes over it, and it is gone;
    the place where it was is not known.
17 But the mercy of the Lord
    is from everlasting to everlasting
upon those who fear Him,
    and His righteousness to children’s children,
18 to those who keep His covenant,
    and to those who remember to do His commandments.

19 The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
    and His kingdom rules over all.

20 Bless the Lord, you His angels,
    who are mighty, and do His commands,
    and obey the voice of His word.
21 Bless the Lord, all you His hosts;
    you servants who do His pleasure.
22 Bless the Lord, all His works,
    in all places of His dominion.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!

Psalm 103 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 103

Of David.

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

The Lord works righteousness
    and justice for all the oppressed.

He made known his ways to Moses,
    his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
    slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
    nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
    or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
    he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
    they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
    and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children’s children
18 with those who keep his covenant
    and remember to obey his precepts.

19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Praise the Lord, you his angels,
    you mighty ones who do his bidding,
    who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
    you his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works
    everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul.
