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.
30 Whoever sets in motion a wicked plan will find that it rolls back over him, and he will not know from which direction it will arrive.
31 Mockery and derision are of the arrogant, and vengeance will lie in wait for them, like a lion.
32 Whoever enjoys the fall of the just will perish in a snare, and grief will consume them before they die.
33 Anger and fury are both abominable, and the sinful man will be held by them.
1 Whoever wishes for vengeance will find vengeance from the Lord, and he will surely be attentive to his sins.
2 Forgive your neighbor, if he has harmed you, and then your sins will be forgiven you when you pray.
3 A man holds on to anger against another man, and does he then seek a remedy from God?
4 He has no mercy on a man like himself, and does he then entreat for his own sins?
5 He who is but flesh holds on to anger, and does he then request forgiveness from God? Who can obtain pardon for his sins in this way?
6 Remember your very end, and let animosities cease.
7 For corruption and death are suspended over his commandments.
