2LORD, I have 1heardbthe report about You and cI 2fear. O LORD, 3revive4Your work in the midst of the years, In the midst of the yearsmake it known; In wrathrememberd5mercy.
3Godcomes from 6Teman, And the HolyOne from Mount7Paran. Selah. His 8splendorcovers the heavens, And the 9earth is full of His praise.
His 10radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, And there is the hiding of His 11power.
5Before Him goes12pestilence, And 13plaguecomeseafter Him.
He stood and surveyed the earth; He looked and 14startled the nations. Yes, the perpetualmountains were shattered, The ancienthillsfcollapsed. His ways are 15everlasting.
I saw the tents of Cushanunder16distress, The tentcurtains of the land of 17Midian were trembling.
