Psalms - Chapter 85 | New King James Version

  • 1. To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. Lord, You have been favorable to Your land; You have brought back the captivity of Jacob.
  • 2. You have forgiven the iniquity of Your people; You have covered all their sin. Selah
  • 3. You have taken away all Your wrath; You have turned from the fierceness of Your anger.
  • 4. Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Your anger toward us to cease.
  • 5. Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?
  • 6. Will You not revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?
  • 7. Show us Your mercy, Lord, And grant us Your salvation.
  • 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 back to folly.
  • 9. Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.
  • 10. Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.
  • 11. Truth shall spring out of the earth, And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
  • 12. Yes, the Lord will give what is good; And our land will yield its increase.
  • 13. Righteousness will go before Him, And shall make His footsteps our pathway.
