Psalm103 Of David 

This is a good time of the year to visit these verses. Psalm103.2 tells us not to forget all of the benefits that come from God.  

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

and forget not all his benefits,

 

Verses 3 through 5 tell us what some of these benefits are.

3 who forgives all your iniquity,

who heals all your diseases,

4 who redeems your life from the pit,

who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

5 who satisfies you with good

so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 

Here in Psalm 68 we again see these benefits. The first translation is that of the ESV which states that God bears us up. The second translation is YLT and it states that God carries our burdens. Both are true and both are valid translations for the word can mean that God bears, carries, or loads us up with benefits. The same benefits that we see in Psalm 103.

Psalm68.19    Blessed be the Lord,

who daily bears us up;

God is our salvation.   (Selah)

 

Psalm68:19 The Lord deserves praise!

Day after day he carries our burden,

the God who delivers us. (Selah)
