1Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction;
who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
David is here communing with his own heart, and he talks to himself and excites his own soul to praise God and remember all His benefits.
David here is calling upon his soul, not to forget the Lord’s benefits — because we are often so quick to forget His benefits. Remember what the Lord has done for you. And what has He done? The Psalmist lists five areas of the Lord’s benefits.
How he stirs up his soul, commands his soul to praise God.
He employees the soul to bless God. And all that is within him. He excites the seat of his passion for God. He invokes his soul to bless God.
Human beings are forgetful creatures, and the Bible is replete with admonitions to “remember,” or, “forget not.”
Some things are worthy of forgetting But David cautions that we should “forget not all his benefits”
In today’s world, many are keenly conscious of those “benefits” associated with their employment. What sort of insurance do I have? What is my retirement package, etc.? How frequently do we contemplate, though, the “benefits” of our loving Father?
In Psalms 103 five marvelous “benefits” are listed. How invigorating to the soul it is to savor these blessings. They are expressed with the following verbs: forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, and satisfies.
