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.

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。
