Chapter 85

1

<To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of the sons of Korah.>\

2

\85:1\Lord, you were good to your land: changing the fate of Jacob.

3

\85:2\The wrongdoing of your people had forgiveness; all their sin had been covered. (Selah.)

4

\85:3\You were no longer angry: you were turned from the heat of your wrath.

5

\85:4\Come back to us, O God of our salvation, and be angry with us no longer.

6

\85:5\Will you go on being angry with us for ever? will you keep your wrath against us through all the long generations?

7

\85:6\Will you not give us life again, so that your people may be glad in you?

8

\85:7\Let us see your mercy, O Lord, and give us your salvation.

9

\85:8\I will give ear to the voice of the Lord; for he will say words of peace to his people and to his saints; but let them not go back to their foolish ways.

10

\85:9\Truly, his salvation is near to his worshippers; so that glory may be in our land.

11

\85:10\Mercy and faith have come together; righteousness and peace have given one another a kiss.

12

\85:11\Faith comes up from the earth like a plant; righteousness is looking down from heaven.

13

\85:12\The Lord will give what is good; and our land will give its increase.

14

\85:13\Righteousness will go before him, making a way for his footsteps.
