Psalm 85

Prayer for the Restoration of God’s Favor

To the leader. Of the Korahites. A Psalm.

1

Lord, you were favorable to your land;

you restored the fortunes of Jacob.

2

You forgave the iniquity of your people;

you pardoned all their sin.Selah

3

You withdrew all your wrath;

you turned from your hot anger.

 

4

Restore us again, O God of our salvation,

and put away your indignation toward us.

5

Will you be angry with us forever?

Will you prolong your anger to all generations?

6

Will you not revive us again,

so that your people may rejoice in you?

7

Show us your steadfast love, O Lord,

and grant us your salvation.

 

8

Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,

for he will speak peace to his people,

to his faithful, to those who turn to him in their hearts.
