To the chief Musician, A Psalm 1for the sons of Korah.

1

LORD, athou hast been 2favourable unto thy land: bthou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2

Thou chast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3

Thou dhast taken away all thy wrath: 3thou hast eturned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

4

fTurn us, O God of our salvation, gand cause thine anger toward us to cease.

5

hWilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

6

iWilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7

jShew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

8

I kwill hear what God the LORD will speak: lfor he will speak peace unto his people, and to mhis saints: but nlet them not turn again to folly.

9

oSurely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that pglory may dwell in our land.

10

qMercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11

rTruth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

12

Yea, sthe LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.

13

tRighteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
