1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. LORD, thou hast been favorable to thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath; thou hast turned [thyself] from the fierceness of thy anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thy anger towards us to cease.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thy anger to all generations?
