Psalms 85


The LORD Offers Deliverance

To the director; [2to the 3sons 4of Korah 1A psalm].

1You thought well, O  lord, of your land. You returned the captivity of Jacob. 2You forgave the lawless deeds of your people. You covered all their sins. 3You rested all of your anger. You turned from the anger of your rage. 4Turn us, O God of our deliverances, and turn your rage from us! 5Shall you [3into 4the 5eons 1be provoked to anger 2against us]? Or shall you extend your anger from generation unto generation? 6O God, you, in turning towards us shall enliven us, and your people shall be glad over you. 7Show to us, O  lord, your mercy! and [2your deliverance 1may you give] to us. 8I shall hear what [3shall speak 4to 5me 1the  lord 2God]; for he shall speak peace unto his people, and unto his sacred ones, and unto the ones turning hearts unto him. 9Moreover [2is near 3the ones 4fearing 5him 1his deliverance]; so that [2may encamp 1his glory] in our land. 10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace kissed. 11Truth [2from out of 3the 4land 1arose]; and righteousness [2from 3heaven 1looks through]. 12For even the  lord shall give graciousness; and our land shall give its fruit. 13Righteousness [2before 3him 1shall go forth], and he shall place [2in 3the way 1his footsteps].
