Of David. 1 Bless the LORD, my soul; all my being, bless his holy name!
2
Bless the LORD, my soul; do not forget all the gifts of God,
3
Who pardons all your sins, heals all your ills,
4
Delivers your life from the pit, surrounds you with love and compassion,
5
2 Fills your days with good things; your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6
The LORD does righteous deeds, brings justice to all the oppressed.
7
His ways were revealed to Moses, mighty deeds to the people of Israel.
8
Merciful and gracious is the LORD, slow to anger, abounding in kindness.
9
God does not always rebuke, nurses no lasting anger,
10
Has not dealt with us as our sins merit, nor requited us as our deeds deserve.
11
As the heavens tower over the earth, so God's love towers over the faithful.
12
As far as the east is from the west, so far have our sins been removed from us.
13
As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on the faithful.
14
For he knows how we are formed, remembers that we are dust.
15
Our days are like the grass; like flowers of the field we blossom.
16
The wind sweeps over us and we are gone; our place knows us no more.
17
But the LORD'S kindness is forever, toward the faithful from age to age. He favors the children's children
18
of those who keep his covenant, who take care to fulfill its precepts.
19
The LORD'S throne is established in heaven; God's royal power rules over all.
20
Bless the LORD, all you angels, mighty in strength and attentive, obedient to every command.
21
Bless the LORD, all you hosts, ministers who do God's will.

Of David 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom do I fear? The LORD is my life's refuge; of whom am I afraid?
2
2 When evildoers come at me to devour my flesh, These my enemies and foes themselves stumble and fall.
3
Though an army encamp against me, my heart does not fear; Though war be waged against me, even then do I trust.
4
One thing I ask of the LORD; this I seek: To dwell in the LORD'S house all the days of my life, To gaze on the LORD'S beauty, to visit his temple.
5
For God will hide me in his shelter in time of trouble, Will conceal me in the cover of his tent; and set me high upon a rock.
6
Even now my head is held high above my enemies on every side! I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and chant praise to the LORD.
7
Hear my voice, LORD, when I call; have mercy on me and answer me.
8
3 "Come," says my heart, "seek God's face"; your face, LORD, do I seek!
9
Do not hide your face from me; do not repel your servant in anger. You are my help; do not cast me off; do not forsake me, God my savior!
10
Even if my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will take me in.
11
LORD, show me your way; lead me on a level path because of my enemies.
12
Do not abandon me to the will of my foes; malicious and lying witnesses have risen against me.
