1 To the chiefe musician, a Psalme for the sonnes of Korah. Lord, thou hast bene fauourable vnto thy land: thou hast brought backe the captiuity of Iacob.
2 Thou hast forgiuen the iniquitie of thy people, thou hast couered all their sinne. Selah.
3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thy selfe from the fiercenesse of thine anger.
4 Turne vs, O God of our saluation: and cause thine anger towards vs to cease.
5 Wilt thou be angry with vs for euer? wilt thou drawe out thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt thou not reuiue vs againe: that thy people may reioyce in thee?
7 Shew vs thy mercy, O Lord; and graunt vs thy saluation.
8 I will heare what God the Lord will speake: for hee will speake peace vnto his people, and to his Saints: but let them not turne againe to folly.
9 Surely his saluation is nigh them that feare him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together: righteousnesse and peace haue kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth: and righteousnesse shall looke downe from heauen.
12 Yea the Lord shall giue that which is good: and our land shall yeeld her increase.
13 Righteousnes shall go before him: and shall set vs in the way of his steps.
