Psalm 85
New International VersionNew Living Translation
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 poured out blessings on your land! You restored the fortunes of Israel.
2You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.2You forgave the guilt of your people— yes, you covered all their sins. Interlude
3You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.3You held back your fury. You kept back your blazing anger.
4Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.4Now restore us again, O God of our salvation. Put aside your anger against us once more.
5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?5Will you be angry with us always? Will you prolong your wrath to all generations?
6Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?6Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you?
7Show us your unfailing love, LORD, and grant us your salvation.7Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your 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 listen carefully to what God the LORD is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways.
9Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.9Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, so our land will be filled with his glory.
10Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.10Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed!
11Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.11Truth springs up from the earth, and righteousness smiles down from heaven.
12The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.12Yes, the LORD pours down his blessings. Our land will yield its bountiful harvest.
13Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.13Righteousness goes as a herald before him, preparing the way for his steps.
