85:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. LORD,
thou hast been favorable to thy land: thou hast brought back
the captivity of Jacob.
85:2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast
covered all their sin. Selah.
85:3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath; thou hast turned
[thyself] from the fierceness of thy anger.
85:4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thy anger
towards us to cease.
85:5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thy
anger to all generations?
85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice
85:7 Show us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
85:8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak
peace to his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn
again to folly.
85:9 Surely his salvation [is] nigh them that fear him; that
glory may dwell in our land.
85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace
have kissed [each other].
85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness
shall look down from heaven.
85:12 Yes, the LORD will give [that which is] good; and our land
shall yield her increase.
85:13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set [us] in
the way of his steps.
