1: Give praise to the Lord, O my soul; let everything in me give praise to his holy name. 2: Give praise to the Lord, O my soul; let not all his blessings go from your memory. 3: He has forgiveness for all your sins; he takes away all your diseases; 4: He keeps back your life from destruction, crowning you with mercy and grace. 5: He makes your mouth full of good things, so that your strength is made new again like the eagle's. 6: The Lord gives decisions in righteousness for all who are in trouble. 7: He gave knowledge of his way to Moses, and made his acts clear to the children of Israel. 8: The Lord is kind and full of pity, not quickly made angry, but ever ready to have mercy. 9: His feeling will no longer be bitter; he will not keep his wrath for ever. 10: He has not given us the punishment for our sins, or the reward of our wrongdoing. 11: For as the heaven is high over the earth, so great is his mercy to his worshippers. 12: As far as the east is from the west, so far has he put our sins from us. 13: As a father has pity on his children, so the Lord has pity on his worshippers. 14: For he has knowledge of our feeble frame; he sees that we are only dust. 15: As for man, his days are as grass: his beautiful growth is like the flower of the field. 16: The wind goes over it and it is gone; and its place sees it no longer. 17: But the mercy of the Lord is eternal for his worshippers, and their children's children will see his righteousness; 18: If they keep his agreement, and have his laws in mind to do them. 19: The Lord has made ready his high seat in the heavens; his kingdom is ruling over all. 20: Give praise to the Lord, you his angels, who are great in strength, doing his orders, and waiting for his voice. 21: Give praise to the Lord, all you his armies; and you his servants who do his pleasure. 22: Give praise to the Lord, all his works, in all places under his rule: give praise to the Lord, O my soul.
