To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah
1 Thou hast been favorable, O Jehovah! to thy land: Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast taken away the iniquity of thy people: Thou hast covered all their sins. Selah
3 Thou hast turned away all thy anger: Thou hast drawn back the fury of thy indignation.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation! And relax thy anger against us.
5 Wilt thou for ever be angry with us? Wilt thou prolong thy wrath from age to age?
6 Wilt not thou being turned to us quicken us? And thy people will rejoice in thee.
7 Show us, O Jehovah! thy mercy; and thy salvation grant unto us.
8 I will hear what God Jehovah will speak: Surely he will speak peace to his people and to his meek ones, And they will not return to folly.
9 Surely near to those who fear him is his salvation, That dwell may glory in our land.
10 Mercy and truth shall meet together; Righteousness and peace shall kiss [each other.]
11 Truth out of the earth shall spring up; And righteousness from heaven shall look down.
12 Likewise Jehovah will give that which is good: And our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness before him shall go; And shall set in the way her steps.
