2 85:1To 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.
3 85:2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
4 85:3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath; thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thy anger.
5 85:4Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thy anger towards us to cease.
6 85:5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thy anger to all generations?
7 85:6Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
8 85:7Show us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
9 85:8I 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.
10 85:9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
11 85:10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
12 85:11Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
13 85:12Yes, the LORD will give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
14 85:13Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
