1 Praise the LORD, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, my soul,
and FORGET NOT all his benefits –
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he REMEMBERS that we are dust.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the LORD’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children –
18 with those who keep his covenant
and REMEMBER to obey his precepts.
