Psalm 85


1Lord, you were favorable | to your land;*

          you restored the fortunes of | Jacob.


2You forgave the iniquity of your | people;*

          you covered | all their sin.


3You withdrew | all your wrath;*

          you turned from your hot | anger.


4Restore us again, O God of our sal- | vation,*

          and put away your indignation | toward us!


5Will you be angry with us for- | ever?*

          Will you prolong your anger to all gener- | ations?


6Will you not revive | us again,*

          that your people may re- | joice in you?


7Show us your steadfast love, | O Lord,*

          and grant us your sal- | vation.


8Let me hear what God the | Lord will speak,*

          for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints;

          but let them not turn back to | folly.


9Surely his salvation is near to those who | fear him,*

          that glory may dwell | in our land.


10Steadfast love and faith- | fulness meet;*

          righteousness and peace kiss each | other.


11Faithfulness springs up | from the ground,*

          and righteousness looks down | from the sky.


12Yes, the Lord will give | what is good,*

          and our land will yield its | increase.


13Righteousness will go be- | fore him*

          and make his foot- | steps a way.
