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.
