Psalm 85

You Showed Favor to Your Land

For the choir director. By the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

Past Goodness

You showed favor to your land, O Lord.
You restored Jacob.
You removed the guilt of your people. Interlude
You covered all their sin.
You put away all your wrath.
You turned from your burning anger.

Present Distress

Restore us, O God who saves us.
Put an end to your indignation with us.
Will you be angry with us forever?
Will you extend your anger through all generations?
Will you not turn and revive us,
so that your people may rejoice in you?

Hope for the Future

Show us your mercy, O Lord,
and give us your salvation.
I will hear what the true God, the Lord, will say.
He indeed speaks peace to his people, to his favored ones,
but do not let them turn to foolish ways.
Surely his salvation is near for those who fear him,
so that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth meet together.
Righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Truth springs up from the earth,
and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give good things,
and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness walks in front of him.
It prepares the way for his footsteps.
