Why does it have strange spelling?
1 The Psalmist out of the experience of former mercies prayeth for the continuance thereof. 8 He promiseth to waite thereon, out of confidence of Gods goodnesse.
[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.1
Thou hast forgiuen the iniquitie of thy people, thou hast couered all their sinne. Selah.2
Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thy selfe from the fiercenesse of thine anger.3
Turne vs, O God of our saluation: and cause thine anger towards vs to cease.
Wilt thou be angry with vs for euer? wilt thou drawe out thine anger to all generations?
Wilt thou not reuiue vs againe: that thy people may reioyce in thee?
Shew vs thy mercy, O Lord; and graunt vs thy saluation.
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.
Surely his saluation is nigh them that feare him; that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth are met together: righteousnesse and peace haue kissed each other.
Truth shall spring out of the earth: and righteousnesse shall looke downe from heauen.
Yea the Lord shall giue that which is good: and our land shall yeeld her increase.
Dauids prayer in affliction.
Righteousnes shall go before him: and shall set vs in the way of his steps.
