10 Near indeed is his salvation for those who fear him; glory will dwell in our land.
11 [a]Love and truth will meet; justice and peace will kiss.(A)12 Truth will spring from the earth; justice will look down from heaven.(B)
13 Yes, the Lord will grant his bounty; our land will yield its produce.(A)14 Justice will march before him, and make a way for his footsteps.
