Psalm 85
New American Standard Bible 1995International Standard Version
1For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. O LORD, You showed favor to Your land; You restored the captivity of Jacob.1LORD you have favored your land and restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2You forgave the iniquity of Your people; You covered all their sin. Selah.2You took away the iniquity of your people, forgiving all their sins Interlude
3You withdrew all Your fury; You turned away from Your burning anger.3You withdrew all your wrath and turned away from your burning anger.
4Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Your indignation toward us to cease.4Restore us, God of our salvation, and stop being angry with us.
5Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger from generation to generation?
6Will You not Yourself revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?6Will you restore our lives again so that your people may rejoice in you?
7Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, And grant us Your salvation.7LORD, show your gracious love and deliver us.
8I will hear what God the LORD will say; For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; But let them not turn back to folly.8Let me listen to what God, the LORD, says; for the LORD will promise peace to his people, to his holy ones; may they not return to foolishness.
9Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.9Surely, he will soon deliver those who fear him, for his glory will live in our land.
10Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.10Gracious love and truth meet; righteousness and peace kiss.
11Truth springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven.11Truth sprouts up from the ground, while righteousness looks down from the sky.
12Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, And our land will yield its produce.12The LORD will also provide what is good, and our land will yield its produce.
13Righteousness will go before Him And will make His footsteps into a way.13Righteousness will go before him to prepare a path for his steps.
