In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 103:1-22, the Psalm opens saying, א   לְדָוִד | בָּרֲכִי נַפְשִׁי אֶת-יְהֹוָה וְכָל-קְרָבַי אֶת-שֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ: ב   בָּרֲכִי נַפְשִׁי אֶת-יְהֹוָה וְאַל-תִּשְׁכְּחִי כָּל-גְּמוּלָיו:  Of David 103:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; (NASB)  What are the benefits of God?  He says these benefits are the Lord ג   הַסֹּלֵחַ לְכָל-עֲוֹנֵכִי הָרֹפֵא לְכָל-תַּחֲלֻאָיְכִי: ד   הַגּוֹאֵל מִשַּׁחַת חַיָּיְכִי הַמְעַטְּרֵכִי חֶסֶד וְרַחֲמִים:  ה   הַמַּשְֹבִּיַע בַּטּוֹב עֶדְיֵךְ תִּתְחַדֵּשׁ כַּנֶּשֶׁר נְעוּרָיְכִי:  103:3 Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; 103:4 Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; 103:5 Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. 103:6 The Lord performs righteous deeds And judgments for all who are oppressed. (NASB)  David recognizes that the Lord lovingly gave Israel His Torah, saying, ו   עֹשֵֹה צְדָקוֹת יְהֹוָה וּמִשְׁפָּטִים לְכָל-עֲשׁוּקִים: ז   יוֹדִיעַ דְּרָכָיו לְמֹשֶׁה לִבְנֵי יִשְֹרָאֵל עֲלִילוֹתָיו: ח   רַחוּם וְחַנּוּן יְהֹוָה אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וְרַב-חָסֶד: ט   לֹא-לָנֶצַח יָרִיב וְלֹא לְעוֹלָם יִטּוֹר: י   לֹא כַחֲטָאֵינוּ עָשָֹה לָנוּ וְלֹא כַעֲוֹנֹתֵינוּ גָּמַל עָלֵינוּ: יא   כִּי כִגְבֹהַּ שָׁמַיִם עַל-הָאָרֶץ גָּבַר חַסְדּוֹ עַל-יְרֵאָיו: יב   כִּרְחֹק מִזְרָח מִמַּעֲרָב הִרְחִיק מִמֶּנּוּ אֶת-פְּשָׁעֵינוּ: יג   כְּרַחֵם אָב עַל-בָּנִים רִחַם יְהֹוָה עַל-יְרֵאָיו:  103:7 He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel. 103:8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. 103:9 He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever. 103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. 103:11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him. 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. 103:13 Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. (NASB)  All of these attributes David ascribes to the Lord God in heaven are taught to us according to the Apostolic Writings.Read More Here: tehillim-103-part1
