Contents: Psalms 103:2, 4, 6, 8-11; 104:6, 8-9, 11
2 Praise Yahweh, my soul,
and dont 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.
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,
9 You have set a boundary that they may not pass over;
that they dont turn again to cover the earth.
11 They give drink to every animal of the field.
The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
