YHWH, You shall take pleasure in Your land; You shall turn back the captivity of Ya`aqob.
You shall take away the crookedness of Your people; You shall cover all their sin. Selah.
You shall withdraw all Your wrath; You shall turn from Your fierce displeasure.
Turn back to us, O Elohim of our deliverance, And cause Your vexation toward us to cease.
Would You be enraged with us forever? Would You draw out Your displeasure From generation to generation?
Would You not revive us again, For Your people to rejoice in You?
Show us Your kindness, O YHWH, And give us Your deliverance.
Let me hear what El YHWH speaks, For He speaks peace to His people And to His kind ones; And let them not turn again to folly.
Truly, His deliverance is near to those who fear Him, For esteem to dwell in our land.
Kindness and truth shall meet, Righteousness and peace shall kiss.
Truth sprouts forth from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven,
Indeed, YHWH gives what is good, And our land yields its increase.
Righteousness goes before Him, And prepares a way for His footsteps.
