Psalms 103

1My soul, praise the Lord! Every part of me, praise his holy name! 2My soul, praise the Lord! And don’t forget that he is truly kind. 3God forgives us for all the sins we do. He heals all our sicknesses. 4God saves our life from the grave. And he gives us love and compassion. 5God gives us plenty of good things. He makes us young again, like an eagle. 6The Lord is fair. God brings justice to people that have been hurt by other people. 7God taught his laws to Moses. God let Israel see the powerful things he can do! 8The Lord is compassionate and merciful. God is patient and full of love. 9The Lord does not always criticize. The Lord does not stay angry at us forever. 10We sinned against God but he didn’t give us the punishment we deserved. 11God’s love for his followers is as high above us as heaven is above the earth. 12And God has taken our sins as far away from us as the east is from the west. 13The Lord is as kind to his followers as a father is to his children. 14God knows all about us. God knows we are made from dust. 15God knows our lives are short. He knows our lives are like grass. God knows we are like a little wildflower. That flower grows quickly. 16Then the hot wind blows and the flower dies. Soon, you can’t even tell where the flower was growing. 17But the Lord has always loved his followers. And he will continue to love his followers forever and ever! God will be good to their children and to their children’s children. 18God is good to people who obey his Agreement. God is good to people who obey his commands. 19God’s throne is in heaven. And he rules over everything. 20Angels, praise the Lord! You angels are the powerful soldiers who obey God’s commands. You listen to God and obey his commands. 21Praise the Lord, all his armies. You are his servants. You do the things that God wants. 22The Lord made everything in every place. God rules everything in every place. And all those things should praise the Lord! My soul, praise the Lord!
