Psalms 85 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

85:1Jehovah, thou hast been favorable unto thy land;

Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

85:2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people;

Thou hast covered all their sin.


85:3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath;

Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

85:4Turn us, O God of our salvation,

And cause thine indignation toward us to cease.

85:5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever?

Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

85:6Wilt thou not quicken us again,

That thy people may rejoice in thee?

85:7Show us thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah,

And grant us thy salvation.

85:8I will hear what God Jehovah will speak;

For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints:

But let them not turn again to folly.

85:9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him,

That glory may dwell in our land.

85:10Mercy and truth are met together;

Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

85:11Truth springeth out of the earth;

And righteousness hath looked down from heaven.

85:12Yea, Jehovah will give that which is good;

And our land shall yield its increase.

85:13Righteousness shall go before him,

And shall make his footsteps a way to walk in.
