Psalm 85

Prayer for the Restoration of God’s Favour

To the leader. Of the Korahites. A Psalm.
1 Lord, you were favourable to your land;
   you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 You forgave the iniquity of your people;
   you pardoned all their sin.
          Selah
3 You withdrew all your wrath;
   you turned from your hot anger.


4 Restore us again, O God of our salvation,
   and put away your indignation towards us.
5 Will you be angry with us for ever?
   Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
6 Will you not revive us again,
   so that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us your steadfast love, O Lord,
   and grant us your salvation.


8 Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,
   for he will speak peace to his people,
   to his faithful, to those who turn to him in their hearts.*
9 Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him,
   that his glory may dwell in our land.


10 Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet;
   righteousness and peace will kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness will spring up from the ground,
   and righteousness will look down from the sky.
12 The Lord will give what is good,
   and our land will yield its increase.
13 Righteousness will go before him,
   and will make a path for his steps.

Psalm 94

God the Avenger of the Righteous


1Lord, you God of vengeance,
   you God of vengeance, shine forth!
2 Rise up, O judge of the earth;
   give to the proud what they deserve!
3Lord, how long shall the wicked,
   how long shall the wicked exult?


4 They pour out their arrogant words;
   all the evildoers boast.
5 They crush your people, O Lord,
   and afflict your heritage.
6 They kill the widow and the stranger,
   they murder the orphan,
7 and they say, ‘The Lord does not see;
   the God of Jacob does not perceive.’


8 Understand, O dullest of the people;
   fools, when will you be wise?
9 He who planted the ear, does he not hear?
He who formed the eye, does he not see?
10 He who disciplines the nations,
he who teaches knowledge to humankind,
   does he not chastise?
11 The Lord knows our thoughts,*
   that they are but an empty breath.


12 Happy are those whom you discipline, O Lord,
   and whom you teach out of your law,
13 giving them respite from days of trouble,
   until a pit is dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not forsake his people;
   he will not abandon his heritage;
15 for justice will return to the righteous,
   and all the upright in heart will follow it.


16 Who rises up for me against the wicked?
   Who stands up for me against evildoers?
17 If the Lord had not been my help,
   my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.
18 When I thought, ‘My foot is slipping’,
   your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up.
19 When the cares of my heart are many,
   your consolations cheer my soul.
20 Can wicked rulers be allied with you,
   those who contrive mischief by statute?
21 They band together against the life of the righteous,
   and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the Lord has become my stronghold,
   and my God the rock of my refuge.
23 He will repay them for their iniquity
   and wipe them out for their wickedness;
   the Lord our God will wipe them out.
