|1||To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of the sons of Korah.
Lord, you were good to your land: changing the fate of Jacob.
|2||The wrongdoing of your people had forgiveness; all their sin had been covered. (Selah.)|
|3||You were no longer angry: you were turned from the heat of your wrath.|
|4||Come back to us, O God of our salvation, and be angry with us no longer.|
|5||Will you go on being angry with us for ever? will you keep your wrath against us through all the long generations?|
|6||Will you not give us life again, so that your people may be glad in you?|
|7||Let us see your mercy, O Lord, and give us your salvation.|
|8||I will give ear to the voice of the Lord; for he will say words of peace to his people and to his saints; but let them not go back to their foolish ways.|
|9||Truly, his salvation is near to his worshippers; so that glory may be in our land.|
|10||Mercy and faith have come together; righteousness and peace have given one another a kiss.|
|11||Faith comes up from the earth like a plant; righteousness is looking down from heaven.|
|12||The Lord will give what is good; and our land will give its increase.|
|13||Righteousness will go before him, making a way for his footsteps.|
