2You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.2You forgave the iniquity of Your people; You covered all their sin. Selah.
3You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.3You withdrew all Your fury; You turned away from Your burning anger.
4Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.4Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Your indignation toward us to cease.
5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?5Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?
6Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?6Will You not Yourself revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?
7Show us your unfailing love, LORD, and grant us your salvation.7Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, And grant us Your salvation.
8I will listen to what God the LORD says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants-- but let them not turn to folly.8I will hear what God the LORD will say; For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; But let them not turn back to folly.
9Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.9Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.
10Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.10Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.11Truth springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven.
12The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.12Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, And our land will yield its produce.
13Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.13Righteousness will go before Him And will make His footsteps into a way.
