1Bless Yahweh, O my soul! And all my inmost parts, bless his holy name!
2Bless Yahweh, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits;
3the one who forgives your every iniquity, the one who heals all your sicknesses,
4the one who redeems your life from the pit, the one who crowns you with covenant faithfulness and tender mercies,
5the one who satisfies your existence with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
6Yahweh performs righteous acts and judgment for all who are oppressed.
7He declared his roads to Moses, his deeds to the children of Israel.
8Yahweh is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in covenant faithfulness.
9He will not always accuse, nor will he keep his anger forever.
10He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us according to our iniquities.
11For as the heavens are high above the earth, so mighty is his covenant faithfulness upon those who fear him.
12As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13Like a father has compassion on his children, so Yahweh has compassion on those who fear him.
14For he himself knows our make-up. He remembers that we are dust.
15Mankind’s days are like grass. As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16When the wind passes over it, then it is no more. And its place no longer remembers it.
17But the covenant faithfulness of Yahweh is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, yes, his righteousness to children’s children;
18to those who keep his covenant, yes, to those who remember to obey his instructions.
19Yahweh has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.
20Bless Yahweh, you angels of his, mighty in strength, who do his word, listening to the voice of his word.
21Bless Yahweh, all you armies of his, you servants of his who do his will.
22Praise Yahweh, all you works of his, in all places of his realm. Bless Yahweh, O my soul!
