Psalm 85 KJV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob. 1 You showed favor to your land, O LORD; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. 2 You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins. "Selah"
3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. 3 You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease . 4 Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? 5 Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6 Wilt thou not revive us again : that thy people may rejoice in thee? 6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 7 Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak : for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. 8 I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints-- but let them not return to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. 9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together ; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 10 Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. 11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. 12 The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps. 13 Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.
