1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of aKorah.) 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 brevive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? 7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 8 cI will hear what God the LORD will speak: for dhe will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn eagain to folly. 9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. 10 fMercy and truth are met together; grighteousness and peace have kissed each other. 11 hTruth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. 12 iYea, 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.
