Lord, you've been kind to your land;
you've changed Jacob's circumstances
for the better.
your people's wrongdoing;
you've covered all their sins.
You've stopped being furious;
you've turned away
from your burning anger.
You, the God who can save us, restore us!
Stop being angry with us!
Will you be mad at us forever?
Will you prolong your anger
from one generation to the next?
Won't you bring us back to life again
so that your people can rejoice in you?
Show us your faithful love, LORD!
Give us your salvation!
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.
God's salvation is very close
to those who honor him
so that his glory can live in our land.
Faithful love and truth have met;
righteousness and peace have kissed.
Truth springs up from the ground;
down from heaven.
Yes, the LORD gives what is good,
and our land yields its produce.
Righteousness walks before God,
making a road for his steps.
Ps. 85 Common English Bible
