Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 LORD, you've been kind to your land; you've changed Jacob's circumstances for the better. 1 You showed favor to your land, O LORD; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 You've forgiven your people's wrongdoing; you've covered all their sins. Selah 2 You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins. "Selah"
3 You've stopped being furious; you've turned away from your burning anger. 3 You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.
4 You, the God who can save us, restore us! Stop being angry with us! 4 Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.
5 Will you be mad at us forever? Will you prolong your anger from one generation to the next? 5 Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6 Won't you bring us back to life again so that your people can rejoice in you? 6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us your faithful love, LORD! Give us your salvation! 7 Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
8 Let me hear what the LORD God says, because he speaks peace to his people and to his faithful ones. Don't let them return to foolish ways. 8 I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints-- but let them not return to folly.
9 God's salvation is very close to those who honor him so that his glory can live in our land. 9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
10 Faithful love and truth have met; righteousness and peace have kissed. 10 Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Truth springs up from the ground; righteousness gazes down from heaven. 11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 Yes, the LORD gives what is good, and our land yields its produce. 12 The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness walks before God, making a road for his steps. 13 Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.
