King James Version

Psalm 103

1Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.

14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20 Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

21 Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

22 Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul.

Salme 103

Guds nåde og trofasthed

1En sang af David.

Min sjæl, pris Herren,
    alt i mig skal ophøje hans hellige navn.
Min sjæl, pris Herren,
    glem ikke hans velgerninger.

Han tilgiver alle mine synder
    og helbreder alle mine sygdomme.
Han frier mig fra dødens gab,
    velsigner mig med sin nåde og godhed.
Han mætter mig med gode gaver,
    jeg får min livskraft igen som ørnen.

Han lader retfærdigheden ske fyldest,
    så de undertrykte får deres ret.
Han åbenbarede sine planer for Moses,
    Israels folk var vidner til hans undere.
Herren er barmhjertig og nådig
    med tålmodig og trofast kærlighed.
Han fortsætter ikke med at anklage os,
    bliver ikke ved med at være vred.
10 Han giver os ikke løn som forskyldt,
    straffer os ikke i forhold til vore synder.
11 Så højt som himlen er over jorden,
    så stor er hans nåde mod dem, der har ærefrygt.
12 Så langt som østen er fra vesten,
    har han fjernet vore synder fra os.
13 Som en far er barmhjertig mod sine børn,
    er Herren barmhjertig mod dem, der ærer ham.
14 Han forstår, hvor skrøbelige vi er,
    han ved, at vi kun er som støv.
15 Vores liv på jorden er som græsset,
    som markblomster, der hurtigt forsvinder.
16 Blæsten gør en ende på blomsten,
    man skulle tro, den aldrig havde været der.

17 Men Herrens trofasthed er evig,
    den omslutter dem, der ærer ham.
Hans godhed bliver alle generationer til del,
18     hvis de holder hans pagt og adlyder hans bud.
19 Herren sidder på sin trone i Himlen,
    alt er underlagt hans herredømme.
20 Lovpris Herren, alle hans engle,
    I vældige krigere, som adlyder hans ordrer
        og udfører alle hans befalinger.
21 Ja, pris Herren, I englehære,
    som tjener ham og udfører hans vilje.
22 Pris Herren, alle hans skabninger,
    hvor I end befinder jer i hans rige.
Min sjæl, pris Herren.
