(3) Turn us again--i.e., "restore us," not necessarily with reference to the Captivity, but generally, restore us to our pristine prosperity.

Cause thy face to shine.--The desert encampment and march is still in the poet's thought. As in Psalm 67:1 (see Note) we have here a reminiscence of the priestly benediction.

Saved.--Or, helped. This verse constitutes the refrain.

Verse 3. - Turn us again, O God; or, restore us - "bring us back" - i.e. bring those of us who are in exile (2 Kings 15:29) back to our country. And cause thy face to shine (comp. Numbers 6:25; Psalm 31:16; Psalm 67:1). The metaphor scarcely needs explanation. And we shall be saved. If thou lookest upon us with favour, our salvation is assured.
