1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O Jehovah, You have been gracious to Your land; You have brought back the captivity of Jacob. 2 You have forgiven the iniquity of Your people; You have covered all their sins. Selah. 3 You have taken away all Your wrath; You have turned from the heat of Your anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause Your anger toward us to cease. 5 Will You be angry with us forever? Will You draw out Your anger to all generations? 6 Will You not give us life again, so that Your people may rejoice in You? 7 Show us Your mercy, O Jehovah, and grant us Your salvation.
8 I will hear what God Jehovah will speak; for He will speak peace to His people, and to His saints; but let them not turn again to folly. 9 Surely His salvation is near those that fear Him, so that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth have 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, Jehovah shall give good; and our land shall yield its increase. 13 Righteousness shall go before Him and shall set us in the way of His steps.
