103:1 Praise Yahweh, my soul! All that is within me, praise his holy name!
103:2 Praise Yahweh, my soul, and don’t forget all his benefits;
103:3 who forgives all your sins; who heals all your diseases;
103:4 who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies;
103:5 who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
103:6 Yahweh executes righteous acts, and justice for all who are oppressed.
103:7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the children of Israel.
103:8 Yahweh is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness.
103:9 He will not always accuse; neither will he stay angry forever.
103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us for our iniquities.
103:11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him.
103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
103:13 Like a father has compassion on his children, so Yahweh has compassion on those who fear him.
103:14 For he knows how we are made. He remembers that we are dust.
103:15 As for man, his days are like grass. As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
103:16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone. Its place remembers it no more.
103:17 But Yahweh’s loving kindness is from everlasting to everlasting with those who fear him, his righteousness to children’s children;
103:18 to those who keep his covenant, to those who remember to obey his precepts.
103:19 Yahweh has established his throne in the heavens. His kingdom rules over all.
103:20 Praise Yahweh, you angels of his, who are mighty in strength, who fulfill his word, obeying the voice of his word.
103:21 Praise Yahweh, all you armies of his, you servants of his, who do his pleasure.
103:22 Praise Yahweh, all you works of his, in all places of his dominion. Praise Yahweh, my soul!

82:1 God presides in the great assembly. He judges among the gods.
82:2 “How long will you judge unjustly, and show partiality to the wicked?”
82:3 “Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless. Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
82:4 Rescue the weak and needy. Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.”
82:5 They don’t know, neither do they understand. They walk back and forth in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
82:6 I said, “You are gods, all of you are sons of the Most High.
82:7 Nevertheless you shall die like men, and fall like one of the rulers.”
82:8 Arise, God, judge the earth, for you inherit all of the nations.
A Song. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.
48:1 Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised, in the city of our God, in his holy mountain.
48:2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the north sides, the city of the great King.
48:3 God has shown himself in her citadels as a refuge.
48:4 For, behold, the kings assembled themselves, they passed by together.
48:5 They saw it, then they were amazed. They were dismayed. They hurried away.
48:6 Trembling took hold of them there, pain, as of a woman in travail.
48:7 With the east wind, you break the ships of Tarshish.
48:8 As we have heard, so we have seen, in the city of Yahweh of Armies, in the city of our God. God will establish it forever.
48:9 We have thought about your loving kindness, God, in the midst of your temple.
48:10 As is your name, God, so is your praise to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is full of righteousness.
48:11 Let Mount Zion be glad! Let the daughters of Judah rejoice, Because of your judgments.
48:12 Walk about Zion, and go around her. Number its towers.
48:13 Mark well her bulwarks. Consider her palaces, that you may tell it to the next generation.
48:14 For this God is our God forever and ever. He will be our guide even to death.
For the Chief Musician. By the sons of Korah. According to Alamoth.
46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
46:2 Therefore we won’t be afraid, though the earth changes, though the mountains are shaken into the heart of the seas;
46:3 though its waters roar and are troubled, though the mountains tremble with their swelling.
46:4 There is a river, the streams of which make the city of God glad, the holy place of the tents of the Most High.
46:5 God is in her midst. She shall not be moved. God will help her at dawn.
46:6 The nations raged. The kingdoms were moved. He lifted his voice, and the earth melted.
46:7 Yahweh of Armies is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge.
46:8 Come, see Yahweh’s works, what desolations he has made in the earth.
46:9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth. He breaks the bow, and shatters the spear. He burns the chariots in the fire.
46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.”
46:11 Yahweh of Armies is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge.
