1 For the leader. A psalm of the sons of Korach: ADONAI, you have shown favor to your land; you have restored the fortunes of Ya'akov, 1 You showed favor to your land, O LORD; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 taken away the guilt of your people, pardoned all their sin, (Selah) 2 You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins. "Selah"
3 withdrawn all your wrath, turned from your fierce anger. 3 You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.
4 Restore us, God of our salvation, renounce your displeasure with us. 4 Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.
5 Are you to stay angry with us forever? Will your fury last through all generations? 5 Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6 Won't you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you? 6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us your grace, ADONAI; grant us your salvation. 7 Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
8 I am listening. What will God, ADONAI, say? For he will speak peace to his people, to his holy ones -but only if they don't relapse into folly. 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 His salvation is near for those who fear him, so that glory will be in our land. 9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
10 Grace and truth have met together; justice and peace have kissed each other. 10 Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Truth springs up from the earth, and justice looks down from heaven. 11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 ADONAI will also grant prosperity; our land will yield its harvest. 12 The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Justice will walk before him and make his footsteps a path. 13 Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.
