Psalm 85

1 For the leader. A psalm of the sons of Korach: ADONAI, you have shown favor to your land; you have restored the fortunes of Ya'akov,
2 taken away the guilt of your people, pardoned all their sin, (Selah)
3 withdrawn all your wrath, turned from your fierce anger.
4 Restore us, God of our salvation, renounce your displeasure with us.
5 Are you to stay angry with us forever? Will your fury last through all generations?
6 Won't you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you?
7 Show us your grace, ADONAI; grant us your salvation.
8 I am listening. What will God, ADONAI, say? For he will speak peace to his people, to his holy ones -but only if they don't relapse into folly.
9 His salvation is near for those who fear him, so that glory will be in our land.
10 Grace and truth have met together; justice and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth springs up from the earth, and justice looks down from heaven.
12 ADONAI will also grant prosperity; our land will yield its harvest.
13 Justice will walk before him and make his footsteps a path.
