1: LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob. 2: Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. 3: Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. 4: Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease. 5: Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? 6: Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? 7: Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 8: I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: 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: Mercy 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 heaven. 12: Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. 13: Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
