1To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. Lord, you were favorable to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob. (Ps 14:7; Ps 42:1; Ps 77:7)2You forgave the iniquity of your people; you covered all their sin. (Ps 32:1)3You withdrew all your wrath; you turned from your hot anger. (Ex 32:12; De 13:17; Ps 78:38; Ps 106:23; Jon 3:9)4Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us! (Ps 80:3)5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations? (Ps 79:5)6Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? (Ps 71:20; Ps 90:14; Ps 149:2)7Show us your steadfast love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.8Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly. (Ps 49:13; Ps 50:5; Hab 2:1; Hag 2:9; Zec 9:10; 2Pe 2:21)9Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. (Isa 46:13; Zec 2:5; Joh 1:14)10Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other. (Ps 40:11; Ps 72:3; Ps 89:14; Isa 45:8)11Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.12Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. (Ps 67:6; Ps 84:11; Jas 1:17)13Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way. (Ps 89:14; Isa 58:8)

King James Version
1To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.4Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?6Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.8I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other .11Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.13Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
