Bless Yahweh, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless Yahweh, O my soul,
And forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities;
Who heals all your diseases;
4 Who redeems your life from destruction;
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfies your desire with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
6 Yahweh executes righteous acts,
And judgments for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses,
His doings to the children of Israel.
8 Yahweh is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness.
9 He will not always chide;
Neither will he keep his anger forever.
10 He has not dealt with us after our sins,
Nor rewarded us after our iniquities.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is his lovingkindness toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pities his children,
So Yahweh pities them that fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;
He remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone;
And the place of it shall know it no more.
17 But the lovingkindness of Yahweh is from everlasting to everlasting
upon them that fear him,
And his righteousness to children’s children;
18 To such as keep his covenant,
And to those that remember his precepts to do them.
19 Yahweh has established his throne in the heavens;
And his kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless Yahweh, you his angels,
That are mighty in strength, that fulfil his word, listening to the voice of his word.
21 Bless Yahweh, all you his hosts,
You ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
22 Bless Yahweh, all you his works,
In all places of his dominion:
Bless Yahweh, O my soul.
Bless Yahweh, O my soul.
O Yahweh my Elohim, you are very great;
You are clothed with honor and majesty:
2 Who covers yourself with light as with a garment;
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain;
3 Who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters;
Who makes the clouds his chariot;
Who walks upon the wings of the wind;
4 Who makes winds his messengers;
Flames of fire his ministers;
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth.
That it should not be moved forever.
6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment;
The waters stood above the mountains.
7 At your rebuke they flee;
At the voice of your thunder they hurry away
8 (The mountains rose, the valleys sank down)
To the place which you had founded for them.
9 You have set a bound that they may not pass over;
That they turn not again to cover the earth.
10 He sends forth springs into the valleys:
They run among the mountains;
11 They give drink to every beast of the field;
The wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By them the birds of the heavens have their habitation;
They sing among the branches
13 He waters the mountains from his chambers:
The earth is filled with the fruit of your works.
14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle,
And herbs for the service of man;
That he may bring forth food out of the earth,
15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man,
And oil to make his face to shine,
And bread that strengthens man’s heart.
16 The trees of Yahweh are filled with moisture;
The cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted;
17 Where the birds make their nests:
As for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
18 The high mountains are for the wild goats;
The rocks are a refuge for the conies.
19 He appointed the moon for seasons:
The sun knows his going down.
20 You make darkness, and it is night,
In which all the beasts of the forest creep forth.
21 The young lions roar after their prey,
And seek their food from El.
22 The sun arises, they are gathered,
And lay them down in their dens.
23 Man goes forth to his work
And to his labor until the evening.
24 O Yahweh, how manifold are your works!
In wisdom you have made them all:
The earth is full of your riches.
25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide,
In which are things creeping innumerable,
Both small and great beasts.
26 There go the ships;
There is leviathan, whom you have formed to play in it.
27 These wait all for you,
That you may give them their food in due season.
28 You give to them, they gather;
You open your hand, they are satisfied with good.
29 You hide your face, they are troubled;
You take away their breath, they die,
And return to their dust.
30 You send forth your Spirit, they are created;
And you renew the face of the ground.
31 Let the glory of Yahweh endure forever;
Let Yahweh rejoice in his works:
32 Who looks on the earth, and it trembles;
He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
33 I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my Elohim while I have any being.
34 Let my meditation be sweet to him:
I will rejoice in Yahweh.
35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth,
And let the wicked be no more.
Bless Yahweh, O my soul.
Oh give thanks to Yahweh, call upon his name;
Make known among the peoples his doings.
2 Sing to him, sing praises to him;
Talk of all his marvelous works.
3 Glory in his holy name:
Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Yahweh.
4 Seek you Yahweh and his strength;
Seek his face evermore.
5 Remember his marvelous works that he has done,
His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,
6 O you seed of Abraham his servant,
You children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
7 He is Yahweh our Elohim:
His judgments are in all the earth.
8 He has remembered his covenant forever,
The word which he commanded to a thousand generations,
9 The covenant which he made with Abraham,
And his oath to Isaac,
10 And confirmed the same to Jacob for a statute,
To Israel for an everlasting covenant,
11 Saying, to you will I give the land of Canaan,
the lot of your inheritance,
12 When they were but a few men in number,
Very few, and sojourners in it.
13 And they went about from nation to nation
From one kingdom to another people.
14 He suffered no man to do them wrong; yes,
he reproved kings for their sakes,
15 Saying, Touch not my anointed ones,
And do my prophets no harm.
16 And he called for a famine upon the land;
He broke the whole staff of bread.
17 He sent a man before them;
Joseph was sold for a servant:
18 His feet they hurt with fetters;
he was laid in chains of iron,
19 Until the time that his word came to pass,
The word of Yahweh tried him.
20 The king sent and loosed him;
Even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free.
21 He made him overseer of his house,
And ruler of all his substance;
22 To bind his princes at his pleasure,
And teach his elders wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt;
And Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 And he increased his people greatly,
And made them stronger than their adversaries.
25 He turned their heart to hate his people,
To deal subtly with his servants.
26 He sent Moses his servant,
And Aaron whom he had chosen.
27 They set among them his signs,
And wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness, and made it dark;
And they rebelled not against his words.
29 He turned their waters into blood,
And killed their fish.
30 Their land swarmed with frogs
In the chambers of their kings.
31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies,
And lice in all their borders.
32 He gave them hail for rain,
And flaming fire in their land.
33 He struck their vines also and their fig-trees,
And broke the trees of their borders.
34 He spoke, and the locust came,
And the grasshopper, and that without number,
35 And they ate up every herb in their land,
And ate up the fruit of their ground.
36 He struck also all the first-born in their land,
The chief of all their strength.
37 And he brought them forth with silver and gold;
And there was not one feeble person among his tribes.
38 Egypt was glad when they departed;
For the fear of them had fallen upon them.
39 He spread a cloud for a covering,
And fire to give light in the night.
40 They asked, and he brought quails,
And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and waters gushed out;
They ran in the dry places like a river.
42 For he remembered his holy word,
And Abraham his servant.
43 And he brought forth his people with joy,
And his chosen with singing.
44 And he gave them the lands of the nations;
And they took the labor of the peoples in possession:
45 That they might keep his statutes,
And observe his laws.
