Psalm 85
New International VersionInternational Standard Version
1For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. You, LORD, showed favor to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.1LORD you have favored your land and restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.2You took away the iniquity of your people, forgiving all their sins Interlude
3You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.3You withdrew all your wrath and turned away from your burning anger.
4Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.4Restore us, God of our salvation, and stop being angry with us.
5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger from generation to generation?
6Will you not 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 unfailing love, LORD, and grant us your salvation.7LORD, show your gracious love and deliver us.
8I will listen to what God the LORD says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants-- but let them not turn 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 those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.9Surely, he will soon deliver those who fear him, for his glory will live in our land.
10Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.10Gracious love and truth meet; righteousness and peace kiss.
11Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.11Truth sprouts up from the ground, while righteousness looks down from the sky.
12The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.12The LORD will also provide what is good, and our land will yield its produce.
13Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.13Righteousness will go before him to prepare a path for his steps.
