1 My soul, praise thou the Lord, and all that

is within me, praise his holy Name.

2 My soul, praise thou the Lord, and forget

not all his benefits.

3 Which forgiveth all thine iniquity, and

healeth all thine infirmities.

4 Which redeemeth thy life from the grave;

and crowneth thee with mercy and compassions.

5 Which satisfieth thy mouth with good things:

and thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment

to all that are oppressed.

7 He made his ways known unto Moses, and

his works unto the children of Israel.

8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, slow

to anger and of great kindness.

9 He will not always chide, neither keep his anger


10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor

rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11 For as high as the heaven is above the earth, so

great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12 As far as the East is from the West: so far hath

he removed our sins from us.

13 As a father hath compassion on his children,

so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear


14 For he knoweth whereof we be made: he

remembereth that we are but dust.

15 The days of man are as grass: as a flower of

the field, so flourisheth he.

16 For the wind goeth over it, and it is gone, and

the place thereof shall know it no more.

17 But the loving kindness of the Lord endureth

forever and ever upon them that fear him, and his

righteousness upon children’s children,

18 Unto them that keep his covenant, and think

upon his commandments to do them.

19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in heaven,

and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20 Praise the Lord, ye his Angels, that excel in

strength, that do his commandment in obeying the

voice of his word.

21 Praise the Lord all ye his hosts, ye his servants

that do his pleasure.

22 Praise the Lord all ye his works, in all places

of his dominion: my soul, praise thou the Lord.
