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 87

The Joy of Living in Zion

Of the Korahites. A Psalm. A Song.
1 On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
2   the Lord loves the gates of Zion
   more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
   O city of God.
          Selah


4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;
   Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia*
   ‘This one was born there,’ they say.


5 And of Zion it shall be said,
   ‘This one and that one were born in it’;
   for the Most High himself will establish it.
6 The Lord records, as he registers the peoples,
   ‘This one was born there.’
          Selah


7 Singers and dancers alike say,
   ‘All my springs are in you.’
