I

2You once favored, LORD, your land, restored the good fortune of Jacob. i Pss 14, 7; 126, 4 . 3You forgave the guilt of your people, pardoned all their sins.   Selah 4You withdrew all your wrath, turned back your burning anger. j Ps 78, 38; Ex 32, 14; Is 48, 9 .

II

5Restore us once more, God our savior; abandon your wrath against us. k Ps 80, 4 . 6Will you be angry with us forever, drag out your anger for all generations? l Pss 79, 5; 89, 47 . 7Please give us life again, that your people may rejoice in you. 8Show us, LORD, your love; grant us your salvation.

III

9I will listen for the word of God; surely the LORD will proclaim peace To his people, to the faithful, to those who trust in him.* 10Near indeed is salvation for the loyal; prosperity will fill our land. 11Love and truth will meet;* justice and peace will kiss. m Pss 89, 15; 97, 2 . 12Truth will spring from the earth; justice will look down from heaven. n Is 45, 8 . 13The LORD will surely grant abundance; our land will yield its increase. o Ps 67, 7; Lv 26, 4; Ez 34, 27; Hos 2, 23–24; Zec 8, 12 . 14Prosperity will march before the LORD, and good fortune will follow behind.
