Psalm 103:2-5 – “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities;

and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

Psalm 103:8-14 – “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. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded
us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them
that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Like as
a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remem-
bereth that we are dust.”
IV. Bless the Lord because He is everlastingly faithful unto those who fear and obey Him.

wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. But the mercy of the LORD
is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; to
such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.”

Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice
of his word. Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. Bless the LORD,
all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.”
