Psalms 103

2 Praise Yahweh, my soul,

and don’t forget all his benefits;


4 who redeems your life from destruction;

who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies;


6 Yahweh executes righteous acts,

and justice for all who are oppressed.


8 Yahweh is merciful and gracious,

slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness.

9 He will not always accuse;

neither will he stay angry forever.

10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,

nor repaid us for our iniquities.

11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,

so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him.


Psalms 104

6 You covered it with the deep as with a cloak.

The waters stood above the mountains.


8 The mountains rose,

the valleys sank down,

to the every place which you had assigned to them.

9 You have set a boundary that they may not pass over;

that they don’t turn again to cover the earth.


11 They give drink to every animal of the field.

The wild donkeys quench their thirst.



How to read these pages:

•      The translation to the left is based on the World English Bible. Words in regular black font are words in the scrolls matching the traditional text for that passage.

•      Words in italics cannot be seen in the scroll, since the scroll is fragmentary. These words are supplied for readability by the World English Bible translation.

•      Words present in the scroll but with some letters unreadable or missing are in blue like this: blue. One Hebrew word often is translated into multiple English words, and when this occurs, all the English words are in blue.

•      Words present in the scroll but with spelling differences that do not affect the meaning are in green like this: green. This is common in Hebrew.

•      If the scroll is different from the traditional text, words in the traditional text that are missing from the text of the scroll are marked through in red like this: strike-through.

•      If the scroll is different from the traditional text, words in the scroll that are not in the traditional text are underlined in red like this: new words.
