Psalm 85
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

You Showed Favor to Your Land

1(84:1) For the end, a Psalm for the sons of Core. O Lord, thou has taken pleasure in thy land: thou hast turned back the captivity of Jacob.

2(84:2) Thou hast forgiven thy people their transgressions; thou has covered all their sins. Pause.

3(84:3) Thou has caused all thy wrath to cease: thou hast turned from thy fierce anger.

4(84:4) Turn us, O God of our salvation, and turn thy anger away from us.

5(84:5) Wouldest thou be angry with us for ever? or wilt thou continue thy wrath from generation to generation?

6(84:6) O God, thou wilt turn and quicken us; and thy people shall rejoice in thee.

7(84:7) Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.

8(84:8) I will hear what the Lord God will say concerning me: for he shall speak peace to his people, and to his saints, and to those that turn their heart toward him.

9(84:9) Moreover his salvation is near them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

10(84:10) Mercy and truth are met together: righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11(84:11) Truth has sprung out of the earth; and righteousness has looked down from heaven.

12(84:12) For the Lord will give goodness; and our land shall yield her fruit.

13(84:13) Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set his steps in the way.
