Psalm 103

Psalm 103

A psalm of David.

I will praise the Lord.
    Deep down inside me, I will praise him.
    I will praise him, because his name is holy.
I will praise the Lord.
    I won’t forget anything he does for me.
He forgives all my sins.
    He heals all my sicknesses.
He saves my life from going down into the grave.
    His faithful and tender love makes me feel like a king.
He satisfies me with the good things I desire.
    Then I feel young and strong again, just like an eagle.

The Lord does what is right and fair
    for all who are treated badly.

He told Moses all about his plans.
    He let the people of Israel see his mighty acts.
The Lord is tender and kind. He is gracious.
    He is slow to get angry. He is full of love.
He won’t keep bringing charges against us.
    He won’t stay angry with us forever.
10 He doesn’t punish us for our sins as much as we should be punished.
    He doesn’t pay us back in keeping with the evil things we’ve done.
11 He loves those who have respect for him.
    His love is as high as the heavens are above the earth.
12 He has removed our sins from us.
    He has removed them as far as the east is from the west.
13 A father is tender and kind to his children.
    In the same way, the Lord is tender and kind
    to those who have respect for him.
14 He knows what we are made of.
    He remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of human beings is like grass.
    People grow like the flowers in the field.
16 When the wind blows on them, they are gone.
    No one can tell that they had ever been there.
17 But the Lord’s love
    for those who have respect for him
    lasts for ever and ever.
Their children’s children will know
    that he always does what is right.
18 He always loves those who keep his covenant.
    He always does what is right for those who remember to obey his commands.

19 The Lord has set up his throne in heaven.
    His kingdom rules over all.

20 Praise the Lord, you angels of his.
    Praise him, you mighty ones
    who carry out his orders and obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all you angels in heaven.
    Praise him, all you who serve him and do what he wants.
22 Let everything the Lord has made praise him
    everywhere in his kingdom.

I will praise the Lord.

Salmos 103

Salmo de David.

1Alaba, alma mía, al Señor;
    alabe todo mi ser su santo nombre.
Alaba, alma mía, al Señor,
    y no olvides ninguno de sus beneficios.
Él perdona todos tus pecados
    y sana todas tus dolencias;
él rescata tu vida del sepulcro
    y te cubre de amor y compasión;
él colma de bienes tu vida[a]
    y te rejuvenece como a las águilas.

El Señor hace justicia
    y defiende a todos los oprimidos.
Dio a conocer sus caminos a Moisés;
    reveló sus obras al pueblo de Israel.

El Señor es clemente y compasivo,
    lento para la ira y grande en amor.
No sostiene para siempre su querella
    ni guarda rencor eternamente.
10 No nos trata conforme a nuestros pecados
    ni nos paga según nuestras maldades.
11 Tan grande es su amor por los que le temen
    como alto es el cielo sobre la tierra.
12 Tan lejos de nosotros echó nuestras transgresiones
    como lejos del oriente está el occidente.
13 Tan compasivo es el Señor con los que le temen
    como lo es un padre con sus hijos.
14 Él conoce nuestra condición;
    sabe que somos de barro.

15 El hombre es como la hierba,
    sus días florecen como la flor del campo:
16 sacudida por el viento,
    desaparece sin dejar rastro alguno.
17 Pero el amor del Señor es eterno
    y siempre está con los que le temen;
su justicia está con los hijos de sus hijos,
18     con los que cumplen su pacto
y se acuerdan de sus preceptos
    para ponerlos por obra.

19 El Señor ha establecido su trono en el cielo;
    su reinado domina sobre todos.

20 Alabad al Señor, vosotros sus ángeles,
    que ejecutáis su palabra
    y obedecéis su mandato.
21 Alabad al Señor, todos sus ejércitos,
    siervos suyos que cumplís su voluntad.
22 Alabad al Señor, todas sus obras
    en todos los ámbitos de su dominio.

¡Alaba, alma mía, al Señor!
