The Passion Translation
3 You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done.[a]
You’ve healed me inside and out from every disease.
4 You’ve rescued me from hell[b] and saved my life.
You’ve crowned me with love and mercy.
5 You satisfy my every desire with good things.[c]
You’ve supercharged my life so that I soar again[d]
like a flying eagle in the sky!
- Psalm 103:3 Starting from this verse and through the rest of the psalm, the writer shifts to the second person (you). This translation has chosen to leave the psalm in the first person to enhance the poetic nuance for the English reader.
- Psalm 103:4 Or “redeemed me from the pit,” a term often used for Sheol or hell.
- Psalm 103:5 The Hebrew text is somewhat difficult to understand. It is literally “who satisfies with good ornaments.”
- Psalm 103:5 Or “your youth [implying both strength and beauty] he restores.”
