Psalm 85
New International VersionKing James Bible
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.1To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
4Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.4Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?6Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7Show us your unfailing love, LORD, and grant us your salvation.7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
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.8I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.11Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.13Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
