103:1Bless Jehovah, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
103:2Bless Jehovah, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
103:3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases;
103:4Who redeemeth thy life from the pit, who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies;
103:5Who satisfieth thine old age with good things; thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
103:6Jehovah executeth righteousness and justice for all that are oppressed.
103:7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
103:8Jehovah is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving-kindness.
103:9He will not always chide, neither will he keep his anger for ever.
103:10He hath not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
103:11For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving-kindness toward them that fear him.
103:12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
103:13As a father pitieth his children, so Jehovah pitieth them that fear him.
103:14For himself knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
103:15As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth:
103:16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone, and the place thereof knoweth it no more.
103:17But the loving-kindness of Jehovah is from everlasting and to everlasting, upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children,
103:18To such as keep his covenant and to those that remember his precepts to do them.
103:19Jehovah hath established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom ruleth over all.
103:20Bless Jehovah, ye his angels, mighty in strength, that execute his word, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
103:21Bless Jehovah, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his that do his will.
103:22Bless Jehovah, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless Jehovah, O my soul!
104:1Bless Jehovah, O my soul! Jehovah my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with majesty and splendour;
104:2Covering thyself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent-curtain; --
104:3Who layeth the beams of his upper chambers in the waters, who maketh clouds his chariot, who walketh upon the wings of the wind;
104:4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flame of fire.
104:5He laid the earth upon its foundations: it shall not be removed for ever.
104:6Thou hadst covered it with the deep, as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains:
104:7At thy rebuke they fled, at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away; --
104:8The mountains rose, the valleys sank, unto the place which thou hadst founded for them; --
104:9Thou hast set a bound which they may not pass over, that they turn not again to cover the earth.
104:10He sendeth the springs into the valleys: they run among the mountains;
104:11They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst.
104:12The birds of heaven dwell by them; they give forth their voice from among the branches.
104:13He watereth the mountains from his upper-chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
104:14He maketh the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man; bringing forth bread out of the earth,
104:16The trees of Jehovah are satisfied, the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted,
104:17Where the birds make their nests; as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
104:18The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs, a refuge for the rock-badgers.
104:19He made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth its going down.
104:20Thou makest darkness, and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the forest creep forth:
104:21The young lions roar after the prey, and to seek their food from ùGod.
104:22The sun ariseth, they retreat, and lay them down in their dens.
104:23Man goeth forth unto his work, and to his labour until the evening.
104:24How manifold are thy works, O Jehovah! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
104:25Yonder is the great and wide sea: therein are moving things innumerable, living creatures small and great.
104:26There go the ships; there that leviathan, which thou hast formed to play therein.
104:27These all look unto thee, that thou mayest give their food in its season:
104:28That thou givest unto them, they gather; thou openest thy hand, they are filled with good.
104:29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; thou takest away their breath, they expire and return to their dust.
104:30Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created, and thou renewest the face of the earth.
104:31The glory of Jehovah will endure for ever; Jehovah will rejoice in his works.
104:32He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.
104:33I will sing unto Jehovah as long as I live; I will sing psalms to my God while I have my being.
104:34My meditation shall be pleasant unto him; I will rejoice in Jehovah.
105:1* Give ye thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name; make known his acts among the peoples.
105:2Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him; meditate upon all his wondrous works.
105:3Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah.
105:4Seek Jehovah and his strength, seek his face continually;
105:5Remember his wondrous works which he hath done, his miracles and the judgments of his mouth:
105:6Ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.
105:7He, Jehovah, is our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
105:8He is ever mindful of his covenant, -- the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, --
105:9Which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;
105:10And he confirmed it unto Jacob for a statute, unto Israel for an everlasting covenant,
105:11Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;
105:12When they were a few men in number, of small account, and strangers in it.
105:13And they went from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people.
105:14He suffered no man to oppress them, and reproved kings for their sakes,
105:15Saying, Touch not mine anointed ones, and do my prophets no harm.
105:16And he called for a famine upon the land; he broke the whole staff of bread.
105:17He sent a man before them: Joseph was sold for a bondman.
105:18They afflicted his feet with fetters; his soul came into irons;
105:20The king sent and loosed him -- the ruler of peoples -- and let him go free.
105:21He made him lord of his house, and ruler over all his possessions:
105:22To bind his princes at his pleasure, and teach his elders wisdom.
105:23And Israel came into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
105:24And he made his people exceeding fruitful, and made them mightier than their oppressors.
105:25He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.
105:26He sent Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen:
105:27They set his signs among them, and miracles in the land of Ham.
105:28He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.
105:29He turned their waters into blood, and caused their fish to die.
105:30Their land swarmed with frogs, -- in the chambers of their kings.
105:31He spoke, and there came dog-flies, and gnats in all their borders.
105:32He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land;
105:33And he smote their vines and their fig-trees, and broke the trees of their borders.
105:34He spoke, and the locust came, and the cankerworm, even without number;
105:35And they devoured every herb in their land, and ate up the fruit of their ground.
105:36And he smote every firstborn in their land, the firstfruits of all their vigour.
105:37And he brought them forth with silver and gold; and there was not one feeble among their tribes.
105:38Egypt rejoiced at their departure; for the fear of them had fallen upon them.
105:39He spread a cloud for a covering, and fire to give light in the night.
105:40They asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
105:41He opened the rock, and waters gushed forth; they ran in the dry places like a river.
105:42For he remembered his holy word, and Abraham his servant;
105:43And he brought forth his people with gladness, his chosen with rejoicing;
105:44And he gave them the lands of the nations, and they took possession of the labour of the peoples:
105:45That they might keep his statutes, and observe his laws. Hallelujah!
