24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 103:1-2, 3-4, 9-10, 11-12

The Lord is kind and merciful, slow to anger, and rich in compassion.

Verse 1:

Bless the LORD, O my soul;
   and all my being, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
   and forget not all his benefits.

Verse 2:

He pardons all your iniquities,
   heals all your ills.
He redeems your life from destruction,
   he crowns you with kindness and compassion.

Verse 3:

He will not always chide,
   nor does he keep his wrath forever.
Not according to our sins does he deal with us,
   nor does he requite us according to our crimes.

Verse 4:

For as the heavens are high above the earth,
   so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.
As far as the east is from the west,
   so far has he put our transgressions from us.
