Psalm 85
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Turn Us Back, O God

For the choir director. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.

1O Yahweh, You showed favor to Your land;

You [†]returned the fortunes of Jacob.

2You forgave the iniquity of Your people;

You covered all their sin. [†]Selah.

3You withdrew all Your fury;

You turned back from Your burning anger.

4Turn us back, O God of our salvation,

And cause Your vexation toward us to cease.

5Will You be angry with us forever?

Will You prolong Your anger from generation to generation?

6Will You not Yourself return to [†]revive us,

That Your people may be glad in You?

7Show us, O Yahweh, Your lovingkindness,

And give us Your salvation.

8Let me hear what the God, Yahweh, will speak;

For He will speak peace to His people, [†]to His holy ones;

But let them not turn back to [†]folly.

9Surely His salvation is near to those who [†]fear Him,

That glory may dwell in our land.

10Lovingkindness and [†]truth have met together;

Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11[†]Truth springs up from the earth,

And righteousness looks down from heaven.

12Indeed, Yahweh will give what is good,

And our land will yield its produce.

13Righteousness will go before Him

And will establish the way of His steps.

1 Or restore the captivity
2 Selah may mean Pause, Crescendo, Musical Interlude
6 Or bring us to life
8 Lit even to
8 Or stupidity
9 Or reverence
10 Or faithfulness
11 Or Faithfulness
