For the director. Of the sons of Korʹah.+ A melody. 85  You have shown favor, O Jehovah, to your land;+ You brought back those of Jacob who were taken captive.+   You have pardoned the error of your people; You forgave* all their sin.+ (Selah)   You held back all your fury; You turned away from your hot anger.+   Restore us,* O God of our salvation, And set aside your displeasure with us.+   Will you be furious with us forever?+ Will you prolong your anger to generation after generation?   Will you not revive us again So that your people may rejoice in you?+   Show your loyal love to us, O Jehovah,+ And grant us your salvation.   I will listen to what the true God Jehovah says, For he will speak peace to his people,+ to his loyal ones, But let them not return to overconfidence.+   Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him,+ So that his glory may reside in our land. 10  Loyal love and faithfulness will meet together; Righteousness and peace will kiss each other.+ 11  Faithfulness will sprout from the earth, And righteousness will look down from the heavens.+ 12  Yes, Jehovah will give what is good,*+ And our land will yield its harvest.+ 13  Righteousness will walk before him+ And make a path for his footsteps.
