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[a]

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

You, Lord, showed favour to your land;
    you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
You forgave the iniquity of your people
    and covered all their sins.[b]
You set aside all your wrath
    and turned from your fierce anger.

Restore us again, God our Saviour,
    and put away your displeasure towards us.
Will you be angry with us for ever?
    Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
Will you not revive us again,
    that your people may rejoice in you?
Show us your unfailing love, Lord,
    and grant us your salvation.

I will listen to what God the Lord says;
    he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants –
    but let them not turn to folly.
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
    that his glory may dwell in our land.

10 Love and faithfulness meet together;
    righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
    and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,
    and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness goes before him
    and prepares the way for his steps.
