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.
