1 <<To the Overcomer, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.>> 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 our saving health and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou extend thine anger from generation to generation?
6 Wilt thou not give us life again that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7 Show us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy saving health.
8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace unto his people and to his saints, that they not turn again to folly.
9 Surely his saving health [is] near those that fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed [each other].
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from the heavens.
12 The LORD shall give [that which is] good, and our land shall bring forth her fruit.
13 Righteousness shall go before him and shall set his steps in the way.:
