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.
Exodus 3:1-6, 9-12
1 Now Moses was pasturing the sheep of his father-in-law Jethro, a priest of Midian. And when he had driven the flock into the interior of the desert, he came to the mountain of God, Horeb.
2 And the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. And he saw that the bush was burning and was not burnt.
3 Therefore, Moses said, "I will go and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt."
4 Then the Lord, discerning that he proceeded on to see it, called to him from the midst of the bush, and he said, "Moses, Moses." And he responded, "Here I am."
5 And he said: "Lest you should approach here, remove the shoes from your feet. For the place on which you stand is holy ground."
6 And he said, "I am the God of your father: the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." Moses hid his face, for he dared not look directly at God.
9 And so, the outcry of the sons of Israel has come to me. And I have seen their affliction, with which they are oppressed by the Egyptians.
10 But come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may lead my people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt."
11 And Moses said to God, "Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and that I should lead the sons of Israel out of Egypt?"
12 And he said to him: "I will be with you. And you will have this as a sign that I have sent you: When you will have brought my people out of Egypt, you will offer sacrifice to God upon this mountain."
