|<< Psalm 85 >>|
King James 2000 Bible
To the Chief Musician upon gittith.
A Psalm for the Sons of Korah.
God Has Forgiven and Restored
1LORD, you have been favorable unto your land: you have brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2You have forgiven the iniquity of your people, you have covered all their sin. Selah.
3You have taken away all your anger: you have turned yourself from the fierceness of your anger.
4Restore us, O God of our salvation, and cause your anger toward us to cease.
5Will you be angry with us forever? will you draw out your anger to all generations?
6Will you not revive us again: that your people may rejoice in you?
7Show us your mercy, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
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 that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield its increase.
13Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
