To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.
Last updated: Apr, 2013
1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned [thyself] from the fierceness of thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely his salvation [is] nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed [each other].
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the LORD shall give [that which is] good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set [us] in the way of his steps.
King James Version
1 To the Overseer. -- By sons of Korah. A Psalm. Thou hast accepted, O Jehovah, Thy land, Thou hast turned [to] the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast borne away the iniquity of Thy people, Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3 Thou hast gathered up all Thy wrath, Thou hast turned back from the fierceness of Thine anger.
4 Turn back [to] us, O God of our salvation, And make void Thine anger with us.
5 To the age art Thou angry against us? Dost Thou draw out Thine anger To generation and generation?
6 Dost Thou not turn back? Thou revivest us, And Thy people do rejoice in Thee.
7 Show us, O Jehovah, thy kindness, And Thy salvation Thou dost give to us.
8 I hear what God Jehovah speaketh, For He speaketh peace unto His people, And unto His saints, and they turn not back to folly.
9 Only, near to those fearing Him [is] His salvation, That honour may dwell in our land.
10 Kindness and truth have met, Righteousness and peace have kissed,
11 Truth from the earth springeth up, And righteousness from heaven looketh out,
12 Jehovah also giveth that which is good, And our land doth give its increase.
13 Righteousness before Him goeth, And maketh His footsteps for a way!
