God blessed his land when our Savior came to earth.
(Origin)
2 BENEDIXISTI, Domine, terram tuam: * avertisti captivitatem Iacob. 2 LORD, Thou hast blessed Thy land: * Thou hast done away with the captivity of Jacob.
3 Remisisti iniquitatem plebis tuae, * operuisti omnia peccata eorum. 3 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people: * Thou hast covered all their sins.
4 Mitigasti omnem iram tuam, * avertisti ab ira indignationis tuae. 4 Thou hast withdrawn all Thy anger: * Thou hast turned away from the wrath of Thy indignation.
5 Converte nos, Deus salutaris noster, * et averte iram tuam a nobis. 5 Convert us, O God, our savior: * and avert Thy anger from us.
6 Numquid in aeternum irasceris nobis? * aut extendes iram tuam a generatione in generationem? 6 Wilt Thou be angry with us for ever: * or wilt Thou extend Thy wrath from generation to generation?
7 Deus tu conversus vivificabis nos, * et plebs tua laetabitur in te. 7 God, Thou wilt turn to us and bring us to life: * and Thy people shall rejoice in Thee.
8 Ostende nobis Domine misericordiam tuam, * et salutare tuum da nobis. 8 Shew us, O Lord, Thy mercy; * and grant us Thy salvation.
9 Audiam quid loquatur in me Dominus Deus, * quoniam loquetur pacem in plebem suam, 9 I will hear what the Lord God will say unto me: * for He will speak peace unto His people
et super sanctos suos, * et in eos qui convertuntur ad cor. and His holy ones: * and unto them who have converted hearts.
10 Verumtamen prope timentes eum salutare ipsius; * ut inhabitet gloria in terra nostra. 10 Surely His salvation is near to them that fear Him: * that glory may dwell in our land.
11 Misericordia et veritas obviaverunt sibi; * iustitia et pax osculatae sunt. 11 Mercy and truth have met each other: * justice and peace have kissed.
12 Veritas de terra orta est, * et iustitia de caelo prospexit. 12 Truth is sprung from the earth: * and justice hath looked down from heaven.
13 Etenim Dominus dabit benignitatem, * et terra nostra dabit fructum suum. 13 For the Lord will give goodness: * and our earth shall yield her fruit.
14 Iustitia ante eum ambulabit, * et ponet in via gressus suos. 14 Justice shall walk before him: * and shall set his steps in the way.
