Psalm 85 (CEB)
85 Lord, you’ve been kind to your land; you’ve changed Jacob’s circumstances for the better. 2 You’ve forgiven your people’s wrongdoing; you’ve covered all their sins.3 You’ve stopped being furious; you’ve turned away from your burning anger. 4 You, the God who can save us, restore us! Stop being angry with us! 5 Will you be mad at us forever? Will you prolong your anger from one generation to the next? 6 Won’t you bring us back to life again so that your people can rejoice in you? 7 Show us your faithful love, Lord! Give us your salvation! 8 Let me hear what the Lord God says, because he speaks peace to his people and to his faithful ones. Don’t let them return to foolish ways. 9 God’s salvation is very close to those who honor him so that his glory can live in our land. 10 Faithful love and truth have met; righteousness and peace have kissed. 11 Truth springs up from the ground; righteousness gazes down from heaven. 12 Yes, the Lord gives what is good, and our land yields its produce. 13 Righteousness walks before God, making a road for his steps.
