1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O LORD, 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 LORD, and grant us Your salvation.
8 I will hear what God the LORD 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, the LORD 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.
