Psalm 85 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

85 (0) For the leader. A psalm of the sons of Korach:

(1) 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(3) withdrawn all your wrath,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.
10 (9) His salvation is near for those who fear him,
so that glory will be in our land.
11 (10) Grace and truth have met together;
justice and peace have kissed each other.
12 (11) Truth springs up from the earth,
and justice looks down from heaven.
13 (12) Adonai will also grant prosperity;
our land will yield its harvest.
14 (13) Justice will walk before him
and make his footsteps a path.
