Psalm 85

For the music leader. Of the Korahites. A psalm.

1 LORD, you've been kind to your land; you've changed Jacob's circumstances for the better.
2 You've forgiven your people's wrongdoing; you've covered all their sins. Selah
3 You've stopped being furious; you've turned away from your burning anger.
4 You, the God who can save us, restore us! Stop being angry with us!
5 Will you be mad at us forever? Will you prolong your anger from one generation to the next?
6 Won't you bring us back to life again so that your people can rejoice in you?
7 Show us your faithful love, LORD! Give us your salvation!
8 Let me hear what the LORD God says, because he speaks peace to his people and to his faithful ones. Don't let them return to foolish ways.
9 God's salvation is very close to those who honor him so that his glory can live in our land.
10 Faithful love and truth have met; righteousness and peace have kissed.
11 Truth springs up from the ground; righteousness gazes down from heaven.
12 Yes, the LORD gives what is good, and our land yields its produce.
13 Righteousness walks before God, making a road for his steps.
