Revive Us Again
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of #Ps. 42, titlethe Sons of Korah.
1 Lord, you were #Ps. 77:7 favorable to your land;
you #Ps. 14:7restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2You #Ps. 32:1forgave the iniquity of your people;
you #Ps. 32:1covered all their sin. Selah
3You withdrew all your wrath;
you #Ps. 78:38; 106:23; Ex. 32:12; Deut. 13:17; Jonah 3:9turned from your hot anger.
4 # See Ps. 80:3 Restore us again, O God of our salvation,
and put away your indignation toward us!
5 # [Ps. 79:5] Will you be angry with us forever?
Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
6Will you not #Ps. 71:20 revive us again,
that your people may #Ps. 90:14; 149:2rejoice in you?
7Show us your steadfast love, O Lord,
and grant us your salvation.
8 # [Hab. 2:1] Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,
for he will #Zech. 9:10; [Hag. 2:9] speak peace to his people, to his #See Ps. 50:5 saints;
but let them not #[2 Pet. 2:21] turn back to #[Ps. 49:13]folly.
9Surely his #Isa. 46:13 salvation is near to those who fear him,
that #Zech. 2:5; [John 1:14]glory may dwell in our land.
Ps. 89:14; See Ps. 40:11 Steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
# [Isa. 45:8]; See Ps. 72:3 righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11Faithfulness springs up from the ground,
and righteousness looks down from the sky.
12Yes, #Ps. 84:11; [James 1:17] the Lord will give what is good,
and our land #See Ps. 67:6will yield its increase.
Ps. 89:14; Isa. 58:8 Righteousness will go before him
and make his footsteps a way.
