Chapter 85

1

To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of the sons of Korah.
Lord, you were good to your land: changing the fate of Jacob.

2

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

3

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

4

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

5

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

6

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

7

Let us see your mercy, O Lord, and give us your salvation.

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.

9

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

10

Mercy and faith have come together; righteousness and peace have given one another a kiss.

11

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

12

The Lord will give what is good; and our land will give its increase.

13

Righteousness will go before him, making a way for his footsteps.
