Psalm 85 King James Version

A Prayer for God's Mercy on Israel

85 Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob. 2  Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. 3  Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. 4  Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease. 5  Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? 6  Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? 7  Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy 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. 9  Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. 10  Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 11  Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. 12  Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. 13  Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
