Psalm 85
NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
1For the music director; written by the Korahites, a psalm. O LORD, you showed favor to your land; you restored the well-being of Jacob. 1LORD, you were favorable to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2You pardoned the wrongdoing of your people; you forgave all their sin. (Selah) 2You forgave the iniquity of your people; you covered all their sin. Selah
3You withdrew all your fury; you turned back from your raging anger. 3You withdrew all your wrath; you turned from your hot anger.
4Restore us, O God our deliverer! Do not be displeased with us! 4Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us!
5Will you stay mad at us forever? Will you remain angry throughout future generations? 5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
6Will you not revive us once more? Then your people will rejoice in you! 6Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
7O LORD, show us your loyal love! Bestow on us your deliverance! 7Show us your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
8I will listen to what God the LORD says. For he will make peace with his people, his faithful followers. Yet they must not return to their foolish ways. 8Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly.
9Certainly his loyal followers will soon experience his deliverance; then his splendor will again appear in our land. 9Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10Loyal love and faithfulness meet; deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss. 10Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11Faithfulness grows from the ground, and deliverance looks down from the sky. 11Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.
12Yes, the LORD will bestow his good blessings, and our land will yield its crops. 12Yes, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.
13Deliverance goes before him, and prepares a pathway for him. 13Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.
