Psalm 85
New International VersionNET 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.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 and covered all their sins.2You pardoned the wrongdoing of your people; you forgave all their sin. (Selah)
3You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.3You withdrew all your fury; you turned back from your raging anger.
4Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.4Restore us, O God our deliverer! Do not be displeased with us!
5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?5Will you stay mad at us forever? Will you remain angry throughout future generations?
6Will you not 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 unfailing love, LORD, and grant us your salvation.7O LORD, show us your loyal love! Bestow on us your deliverance!
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 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 those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.9Certainly his loyal followers will soon experience his deliverance; then his splendor will again appear in our land.
10Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.10Loyal love and faithfulness meet; deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss.
11Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.11Faithfulness grows from the ground, and deliverance looks down from the sky.
12The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.12Yes, the LORD will bestow his good blessings, and our land will yield its crops.
13Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.13Deliverance goes before him, and prepares a pathway for him.
