6 Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?
7 Show us Your mercy, Jehovah, and grant us Your salvation.
8 I will hear what Jehovah the Mighty God will speak, for He will speak peace to His

9 Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from Heaven.
12 Yea, Jehovah will give good; and our land shall yield its increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before Him, and shall set us in the way of His steps.
