Psalms - Chapter 85 | English Standard Version

  • 1. To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. LORD, you were favorable to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
  • 2. You forgave the iniquity of your people; you covered all their sin. Selah.
  • 3. You withdrew all your wrath; you turned from your hot anger.
  • 4. Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us!
  • 5. Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
  • 6. Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
  • 7. Show us your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
  • 8. Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly.
  • 9. Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
  • 10. Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
  • 11. Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.
  • 12. Yes, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.
  • 13. Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.
