LORD, you were 1favorable to your land; you 2restored the fortunes of Jacob.
You 3forgave the iniquity of your people; you 4covered all their sin. Selah
You withdrew all your wrath; you 5turned from your hot anger.
6Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us!
7Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
Will you not 8revive us again, that your people may 9rejoice in you?
Show us your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
10Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will 11speak peace to his people, to his 12saints; but let them not 13turn back to 14folly.
Surely his 15salvation is near to those who fear him, that 16glory may dwell in our land.
17Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; 18righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.
Yes, 19the LORD will give what is good, and our land 20will yield its increase.
21Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.
