1 To David himself. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and bless his holy name, all that is within me.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his recompenses.
3 He forgives all your iniquities. He heals all your infirmities.
4 He redeems your life from destruction. He crowns you with mercy and compassion.
5 He satisfies your desire with good things. Your youth will be renewed like that of the eagle.
6 The Lord accomplishes mercies, and his judgment is for all who patiently endure injuries.
7 He has made his ways known to Moses, his will to the sons of Israel.
8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful, patient and full of mercy.
9 He will not be angry forever, and he will not threaten for eternity.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, and he has not repaid us according to our iniquities.
6 For you are a holy people to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you so that you would be his particular people out of all the peoples who are upon the earth.
7 It is not because you surpass all the nations in number that the Lord has joined with you and has chosen you, for you are the least numerous of any people.
8 But it is because the Lord has loved you, and has kept his oath, which he swore to your fathers. And he has led you away with a strong hand, and he has redeemed you from the house of servitude, from the hand of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt.
9 And you shall know that the Lord your God himself is a strong and faithful God, preserving his covenant and his mercy for those who love him and those who keep his precepts for a thousand generations,
10 and promptly repaying those who hate him, so as to utterly ruin them, without further delay, quickly rendering to them what they deserve.
11 Therefore, keep the precepts and ceremonies as well as the judgments, which I command to you this day, so that you may do them.
