Amplified Bible

Psalm 85

Prayer for God’s Mercy upon the Nation.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1O Lord, You have [at last] shown favor to Your land [of Canaan];
You have restored [from Babylon] the captives of Jacob (Israel).

You have forgiven the wickedness of Your people;
You have covered all their sin. Selah.

You have withdrawn all Your wrath,
You have turned away from Your burning anger.


Restore us, O God of our salvation,
And cause Your indignation toward us to cease.

Will You be angry with us forever?
Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?

Will You not revive us and bring us to life again,
That Your people may rejoice in You?

Show us Your lovingkindness, O Lord,
And grant us Your salvation.


I will hear [with expectant hope] what God the Lord will say,
For He will speak peace to His people, to His [a]godly ones—
But let them not turn again to folly.

Surely His salvation is near to those who [reverently] fear Him [and obey Him with submissive wonder],
That glory [the manifest presence of God] may dwell in our land.
10 
Steadfast love and truth and faithfulness meet together;
Righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 
Truth springs from the earth,
And righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 
Indeed, the Lord will give what is good,
And our land will yield its produce.
13 
Righteousness will go before Him
And will make His footsteps into a way [in which to walk].

詩篇 85

為國家求福

可拉後裔的詩,交給樂長。

1耶和華啊,你賜福了你的土地,
使雅各的子孫重返家園。
你赦免了你子民的罪過,
遮蓋了他們所有的過犯。(細拉)
你收回自己的怒氣,
不發烈怒。
拯救我們的上帝啊,
求你復興我們,
止息你對我們的怒氣。
你要向我們永遠發怒嗎?
你的怒氣要延續到萬代嗎?
你不再復興我們,
使你的子民靠你歡喜嗎?
耶和華啊,求你向我們施慈愛,拯救我們。
我要聽耶和華上帝所說的話,
因為祂應許賜平安給祂忠心的子民。
但我們不可再犯罪。
祂拯救敬畏祂的人,
好讓祂的榮耀常駐在我們的地上。
10 慈愛和忠信同行,
公義與平安相親。
11 忠信從地而生,
公義從天而現。
12 耶和華賜下祝福,
我們的土地就出產豐富。
13 公義要行在祂面前,為祂開路。
