1: (To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.) Thou hast been favourable, Jehovah, unto thy land; thou hast turned the captivity of Jacob: 2: Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people; thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. 3: Thou hast withdrawn all thy wrath; thou hast turned from the fierceness of thine anger. 4: Bring us back, O God of our salvation, and cause thine indignation toward us to cease. 5: Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger from generation to generation? 6: Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice in thee? 7: Shew us thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, and grant us thy salvation. 8: I will hear what God, Jehovah, will speak; for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his godly ones: but let them not turn again to folly. 9: Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. 10: Loving-kindness and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other: 11: Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from the heavens. 12: Jehovah also will give what is good, and our land shall yield its increase. 13: Righteousness shall go before him, and shall set his footsteps on the way.
