A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

103:1 Bless the LORD. The exhortation to “bless the LORD” occurs six times in this psalm (verses l,2,20, 21,22). Men or angels can bless the Lord when they praise or thank Him, or—especially—when they worship Him (that is, obey His will). He blesses us with “life, and breath, and all things” (Acts 17:25), and it blesses Him when we “forget not all His benefits” (Psalm 102:2).

103:3 healeth. This promise has its primary fulfillment in our resurrection bodies, when all diseases will be cured forever, even the greatest disease, that of aging and dying itself.
