Morning Psalm 103


11  For as the heavens are high above the earth, 
          so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; 
12  as far as the east is from the west, 
          so far he removes our transgressions from us. 
13  As a father has compassion for his children, 
          so the LORD has compassion for those who fear him. 
14  For he knows how we were made; 
          he remembers that we are dust.
15  As for mortals, their days are like grass; 
          they flourish like a flower of the field; 
16  for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, 
          and its place knows it no more. 
17  But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting 
          on those who fear him, 
          and his righteousness to children’s children, 
18  to those who keep his covenant 
          and remember to do his commandments.
