Psalm 85

For the leader
of the children of Korah
A Psalm
You were pleased יְהוָה with your land
you turned the captivity of Jacob
you forgave the iniquity of your people
you covered all their sin
You gathered in all your wrath
you have turned from your fierce anger
Turn us O God of our salvation
and make your indignation towards us cease

Will you be angry with us forever?
will you draw out your anger from age to age?
will you not turn and revive us?

so your people will rejoice in you
show us יְהוָה your mercy
and give us your salvation

I will hear what the One יְהוָה will speak
for he will speak peace to his people and to those of his loving kindness
but let them not turn to folly
surely to those fearing him his salvation is near
that glory may dwell in our land

Loving kindness and truth have met together
righteousness and peace have kissed each other
truth springs up from earth
and righteousness has looked down from heaven

Yea יְהוָה gives the good
and our land gives her increase
righteousness walks before his face
to place the way of his steps
