Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 85
1 LORD, you were favorable | to your land;*
you restored the fortunes of | Jacob.
2 You forgave the iniquity of your | people;*
you covered | all their sin.
3 You withdrew | all your wrath;*
you turned from your hot | anger.
4 Restore us again, O God of our sal- | vation,*
and put away your indignation | toward us!
5 Will you be angry with us for- | ever?*
Will you prolong your anger to all gener- | ations?
6 Will you not revive | us again,*
that your people may re- | joice in you?
7 Show us your steadfast love, | O LORD,*
and grant us your sal- | vation.
8 Let 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.
9 Surely his salvation is near to those who | fear him,*
that glory may dwell | in our land.
10 Steadfast love and faith- | fulness meet;*
righteousness and peace kiss each | other.
11 Faithfulness springs up | from the ground,*
and righteousness looks down | from the sky.
12 Yes, the LORD will give | what is good,*
and our land will yield its | increase.
13 Righteousness will go be- | fore him*
and make his foot- | steps a way.
