Psalm 85
New American Standard Bible 1995NET Bible
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.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.
2You forgave the iniquity of Your people; You covered all their sin. Selah.2You pardoned the wrongdoing of your people; you forgave all their sin. (Selah)
3You withdrew all Your fury; You turned away from Your burning anger.3You withdrew all your fury; you turned back from your raging anger.
4Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Your indignation toward us to cease.4Restore us, O God our deliverer! Do not be displeased with us!
5Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?5Will you stay mad at us forever? Will you remain angry throughout future generations?
6Will You not Yourself revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?6Will you not revive us once more? Then your people will rejoice in you!
7Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, And grant us Your salvation.7O LORD, show us your loyal love! Bestow on us your deliverance!
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.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.
9Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.9Certainly his loyal followers will soon experience his deliverance; then his splendor will again appear in our land.
10Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.10Loyal love and faithfulness meet; deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss.
11Truth springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven.11Faithfulness grows from the ground, and deliverance looks down from the sky.
12Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, And our land will yield its produce.12Yes, the LORD will bestow his good blessings, and our land will yield its crops.
13Righteousness will go before Him And will make His footsteps into a way.13Deliverance goes before him, and prepares a pathway for him.
