The Psalms

A Prayer for God's Mercy on Israel
To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.

1  LORD, thou hast been favorable 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.
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 revive us again:
that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7  Show us thy mercy, O LORD,
and grant us thy salvation.
8  I 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.
9  Surely his salvation is nigh them 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 heaven.
12  Yea, 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.
