Thanksgiving for God’s Goodness
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name.
Ps 103:1-22. A Psalm of joyous praise, in which the writer rises from a thankful acknowledgment of personal blessings to a lively celebration of God's gracious attributes, as not only intrinsically worthy of praise, but as specially suited to man's frailty. He concludes by invoking all creatures to unite in his song.
1. Bless, &c.—when God is the object, praise.
all … within me—(De 6:5).
his holy name—(Ps 5:11), His complete moral perfections.
