Salme 85

Landets genopbygning

1Til korlederen: En sang af en af Koras efterkommere.

Du var nådig mod dit land, Herre,
    du vendte Israels skæbne,
du tilgav dit folks synder,
    du fjernede al deres skyld!
Du vendte dig væk fra din vrede,
    din heftige harme holdt op.
Genopret os, Gud, vor Frelser,
    lad dit mishag imod os høre op.
Vil du være vred på os for evigt?
    Skal din vrede vare fra slægt til slægt?
Tag imod os endnu en gang,
    så vi atter kan glæde os i dig.
Vis os din trofaste kærlighed, Herre,
    red os endnu en gang.

Jeg vil lytte omhyggeligt til Herrens ord,
    for han taler om fred til sit folk,
        lad dem ikke gentage deres dumheder.
10 De, der adlyder ham, skal opleve hans frelse,
    landet skal fyldes af hans herlighed igen.
11 Troskab og pålidelighed skal mødes,
    godhed og fred skal kysse hinanden.
12 Sandhed spirer frem af jorden,
    retfærdighed kommer ned fra Himlen.
13 Ja, Herren vil velsigne os igen,
    så jorden giver en rigelig høst.
14 Godhed skal gå foran ham
    og bane en vej for hans fødder.

Psalm 85

Psalm 85

For the director of music. A psalm of the Sons of Korah.

Lord, you were good to your land.
    You blessed the people of Jacob with great success again.
You forgave the evil things your people did.
    You took away all their sins.
You stopped being angry with them.
    You turned your great anger away from them.

God our Savior, make us new again.
    Stop being unhappy with us.
Will you be angry with us forever?
    Will you be angry for all time to come?
Won’t you give us new life again?
    Then we’ll be joyful because of what you have done.
Lord, show us your faithful love.
    Save us.

I will listen to what God the Lord says.
    He promises peace to his faithful people.
    But they must not turn to foolish ways.
I know he’s ready to save those who have respect for him.
    Then his glory can be seen in our land.

10 God’s truth and faithful love join together.
    His peace and holiness kiss each other.
11 His truth springs up from the earth.
    His holiness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will certainly give what is good.
    Our land will produce its crops.
13 God’s holiness leads the way in front of him.
    It prepares the way for his coming.
