Psalm 85
New Living TranslationHolman Christian Standard Bible
1LORD, you poured out blessings on your land! You restored the fortunes of Israel.1For the choir director. A psalm of the sons of Korah. LORD, You showed favor to Your land; You restored Jacob's prosperity.
2You forgave the guilt of your people— yes, you covered all their sins. Interlude2You took away Your people's guilt; You covered all their sin. Selah
3You held back your fury. You kept back your blazing anger.3You withdrew all Your fury; You turned from Your burning anger.
4Now restore us again, O God of our salvation. Put aside your anger against us once more.4Return to us, God of our salvation, and abandon Your displeasure with us.
5Will you be angry with us always? Will you prolong your wrath to all generations?5Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger for all generations?
6Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you?6Will You not revive us again so that Your people may rejoice in You?
7Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.7Show us Your faithful love, LORD, and give us Your salvation.
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.8I will listen to what God will say; surely the LORD will declare peace to His people, His godly ones, and not let them go back to foolish ways.
9Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, so our land will be filled with his glory.9His salvation is very near those who fear Him, so that glory may dwell in our land.
10Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed!10Faithful love and truth will join together; righteousness and peace will embrace.
11Truth springs up from the earth, and righteousness smiles down from heaven.11Truth will spring up from the earth, and righteousness will look down from heaven.
12Yes, the LORD pours down his blessings. Our land will yield its bountiful harvest.12Also, the LORD will provide what is good, and our land will yield its crops.
13Righteousness goes as a herald before him, preparing the way for his steps.13Righteousness will go before Him to prepare the way for His steps.
