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.
11 For according to the height of the heavens above the earth, so has he reinforced his mercy toward those who fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our iniquities from us.
Micah 7:14-15, 18-20
14 With your rod, pasture your people, the flock of your inheritance, living alone in the narrow forest, in the midst of Carmel. They will graze in Bashan and Gilead, as in the ancient days.
15 As in the days of your departure from the land of Egypt, I will reveal miracles to him.
18 What God is like you, who takes away iniquity and passes over the sin of the remnant of your inheritance? No longer will he send forth his fury, because he is willing to be merciful.
19 He will turn back and have mercy on us. He will put away our iniquities, and he will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
20 You will give the truth to Jacob, mercy to Abraham, which you swore to our fathers from the ancient days.
