THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 85 ©
The psalmist places before the eyes of God the deliverances exhibited unto His people in former times, beseeching Him to show in the future such favor to His church, promising that he will rely upon it.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.
LORD, thou hast 1been favourable unto 2thy land: thou hast brought back 3the captivity 4of Jacob.
Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
Thou hast 5taken away all thy 6wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
7Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger 8to all generations?
9Wilt thou not revive us again:a that thy people may rejoice 10in thee?
11Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us 12thy salvation.
13I 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 14to folly.
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; 15that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and 16truth 17are met together; righteousnessb and peace 18have kissed 19each other.
Truth 20shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness 21shall look down from heaven.
Yea, the LORD shall give that which is 22good; and our landc shall yield her increase.
23Righteousness shall go before him; and 24shall set us in the way of his steps.
