[A Psalme of Dauid.]
1
Blesse the Lord, O my soule: and all that is within me, blesse his holy Name.
2
Blesse the Lord, O my soule: & forget not all his benefits.
3
Who forgiueth all thine iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases.
4
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with louing kindnesse and tender mercies.
5
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things: so that thy youth is renewed like the Eagles.
6
The Lord executeth righteousnesse: and iudgement for all that are oppressed.
7
He made knowen his wayes vnto Moses: his actes vnto the children of Israel.
8
The Lord is mercifull and gracious: slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9
Hee will not alwayes chide: neither will he keepe his anger for euer.
10
Hee hath not dealt with vs after our sinnes: nor rewarded vs according to our iniquities.
11
For as the heauen is high aboue the earth: so great is his mercy toward them that feare him.
12
As farre as the East is from the West: so farre hath hee remooued our transgressions from vs.
13
Like as a father pitieth his children: so the Lord pitieth them that feare him.
14
For he knoweth our frame: hee remembreth that we are dust.
15
As for man, his dayes are as grasse: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16
For the winde passeth ouer it, and it is gone;
and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17
But the mercy of the Lord is from euerlasting to euerlasting vpon them that feare him: and his righteousnesse vnto childrens children:
18
To such as keepe his couenant: and to those that remember his commandements to doe them.
19
The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heauens: and his kingdome ruleth ouer all.
20
Blesse the Lord yee his Angels, that excell in strength, that do his commandements: hearkening vnto the voice of his word.
21
Blesse ye the Lord all yee his hostes: ye ministers of his that doe his pleasure.
22
Blesse the Lord all his works in all places of his dominion: blesse the Lord, O my soule.
