1 To the overseer: to the sons of Korah a chanting. O Jehovah, thou didst delight in thy land: thou didst turn back the captivity of Jacob. 2 Thou didst lift up the iniquity of thy people, thou didst cover all their sin. Silence. 3 Thou didst take away all thy wrath: thou didst turn back the burning of thine anger.
4 Turn us back, O God of our salvation, and annul thine anger with us. 5 Wilt thou be angry with us forever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to generation and generation? 6 Wilt thou not turn back? wilt thou give us life? and thy people shall rejoice in thee. 7 Cause us, O Jehovah, to see thy mercy, and thou wilt give to us thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God Jehovah shall speak: for he will speak peace to his people, and to his godly ones: and they shall not turn back to folly. 9 Surely his salvation is near to those fearing him, for glory to dwell in his land.
10 Mercy and truth met together; justice and peace kissed. 11 Truth will spring up from the earth, and justice looked forth from the heavens. 12 Also Jehovah will give good, and our land shall give her produce. 13 Justice shall go before him, and shall set to the way of his steps.
