3 Thou didst withdraw all thy wrath; thou didst turn from thy hot anger. 3 You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.
4 Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away thy indignation toward us! 4 Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt thou prolong thy anger to all generations? 5 Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6 Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice in thee? 6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us thy steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 7 Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
8 Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints, to those who turn to him in their hearts. 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 Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. 9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
10 Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other. 10 Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky. 11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 Yea, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. 12 The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness will go before him, and make his footsteps a way. 13 Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.
