Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, (Psalm 103:2, 3) (NIV)

I was just comparing these verses in different versions of the Bible. These were the findings:

Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; (Psalm 103:2, 3)(NAS)

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits-- Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases, (Psalm 103:2, 3)(Amplified)

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; (Psalm 103:2, 3)(KJV)

Bless Jehovah, O my soul, And forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; (Psalm 103:2, 3)(ASV)

There's not much change in the meaning of the verses in any of these versions. The points to note being that God forgives all our sins/iniquities and heals all our diseases.

Many do believe in the sin-forgiving ability of the Lord, but when it comes to healing many doubt.

There can be many arguments regarding this, but the point is whether we are willing to take the Word literally as it is, for "today".

Can anyone of us say that the verse is untrue?

Even if we haven't seen healing in a specific case/ many cases, we cannot state that the Lord does not heal now.

He does heal and many of us are witnesses of it. So even today, shall we believe that he is still the disease-healing God as he is the sin-forgiving God?

Can we emphatically say, "Yes God, you heal all my diseases as I read in your Word and may your name be glorified".

Can we exhort ourselves and say what the psalmist sang: Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases. That would be wonderful.
