Tehillim (Psalms) 85
1יהוה, You shall take pleasure in Your land; You shall turn back the captivity of Ya‛aqoḇ.
2You shall take away the crookedness of Your people; You shall cover all their sin. Selah.
3You shall withdraw all Your wrath; You shall turn from Your fierce displeasure.
4Turn back to us, O Elohim of our deliverance, And cause Your vexation toward us to cease.
5Would You be enraged with us forever? Would You draw out Your displeasure From generation to generation?
6Would You not revive us again, For Your people to rejoice in You?
7Show us Your loving-commitment, O יהוה, And give us Your deliverance.
8Let me hear what Ěl יהוה speaks, For He speaks peace to His people And to His lovingly-committed ones; And let them not turn again to folly.
9Truly, His deliverance is near to those who fear Him, For esteem to dwell in our land.
10Loving-commitment and truth shall meet, Righteousness and peace shall kiss.
11Truth sprouts forth from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven,
12Indeed, יהוה gives what is good, And our land yields its increase.
13Righteousness goes before Him, And prepares a way for His footsteps.
