|Praise for Jehovahs Mercies|
|A Psalm of David.|
| ||BLESS Jehovah, O my soul;|
And all that is within me, bless his holy name.
| ||Bless Jehovah, O my soul,|
And forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
Who healeth all thy diseases;
| ||Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; 1|
Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
| ||Who satisfieth thy 2 desire with good things,|
So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle.
| ||Jehovah executeth righteous acts,|
And judgments for all that are oppressed.
| ||He made known his ways unto Moses,|
His doings unto the children of Israel.
| ||Jehovah is merciful and gracious,|
Slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness.
| ||He will not always chide;|
Neither will he keep his anger for ever.
| ||He hath not dealt with us after our sins,|
Nor rewarded us after our iniquities.
| ||For as the heavens are high above the earth,|
So great is his lovingkindness toward them that fear him.
| ||As far as the east is from the west,|
So far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
| ||Like as a father pitieth his children,|
So Jehovah pitieth them that fear him.
| ||For he knoweth our frame;|
He remembereth that we are dust.
| ||As for man, his days are as grass;|
As a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
| ||For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;|
And the place thereof shall know it no more.
| ||But the lovingkindness of Jehovah is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him,|
And his righteousness unto childrens children;
| ||To such as keep his covenant,|
And to those that remember his precepts to do them.
| ||Jehovah hath established his throne in the heavens;|
And his kingdom ruleth over all.
| ||Bless Jehovah, ye his angels,|
That are mighty in strength, that fulfil his word,
Hearkening unto the voice of his word.
| ||Bless Jehovah, all ye his hosts,|
Ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
| ||Bless Jehovah, all ye his works,|
In all places of his dominion:
Bless Jehovah, O my soul.
