For the director. Of the sons of Koʹrah. A melody. 85 You have taken pleasure, O Jehovah, in your land;+You have brought back* the ones taken captive of Jacob.+ 2 You have pardoned the error of your people;+You have covered all their sin.+ Seʹlah. 3 You have controlled* all your fury;+You have turned back from the heat of your anger.+ 4 Gather us back,* O God of our salvation,+And break off your vexation with us.+ 5 Is it to time indefinite that you will be incensed at us?+Will you draw out your anger to generation after generation?+ 6 Will you yourself not enliven us again,+That your people themselves may rejoice in you?+ 7 Show us, O Jehovah, your loving-kindness,*+And your salvation may you give to us.+ 8 I will hear what the [true] God Jehovah will speak,+For he will speak peace to his people+ and to his loyal ones,But let them not return to self-confidence.+ 9 Surely his salvation is near to those fearing him,+For glory to reside in our land.+ 10 As for loving-kindness and trueness,* they have met each other;+Righteousness and peace—they have kissed each other.+ 11 Trueness itself will sprout out of the very earth,+And righteousness itself will look down from the very heavens.+ 12 Also, Jehovah, for his part, will give what is good,+And our own land will give its yield.+ 13 Before him righteousness itself will walk,+And it will make a way by his steppings.+
