Restore Your People from Captivity
1For the music director, a psalm of the sons of Korah.
2Adonai, will you favor Your land? Will You restore Jacob from captivity?
3Will You bear away Your people’s iniquity, Will You pardon all their sin? Selah
4Will You withdraw all Your wrath? Will You turn from Your burning anger?
5Restore us, O God of our salvation, and renounce Your indignation with us.
6Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger from generation to generation?
7Will You not revive us again, so Your people may rejoice in You?
8Show us Your mercy, Adonai, and grant us Your salvation.
9Let me hear what God Adonai will say. For He will speak shalom to His people, and to His kedoshim— but let them not turn back to folly.
10Surely His salvation is near those who fear Him, so that glory may dwell in our land.
11Lovingkindness and truth meet together. Righteousness and shalom kiss each other.
12Truth will spring up from the earth, and justice will look down from heaven.
13Yes, Adonai will give what is good, and our land will yield its produce.
14Righteousness is going before Him and prepares a way for His feet.
