Psalm 85 Tuesday Morning 3
Favor your land, Yahweh; * restore the fortunes of Jacob!
Forgive the guilt of your people; * remit all their sin!
Withdraw all your fury; * cool your blazing anger!
Return to us, God of our prosperity; * banish from us your indignation!
Will you forever be angry with us, * prolonging your anger to all generations?
You are the Victor, * restore us to life, * that your people might rejoice in you.
Show us, Yahweh, your kindness, * and give us your prosperity.
Let me announce what God himself has spoken: * “Yahweh indeed has promised well-being
to his people who worship him, * to those who confide in him again.
His prosperity is very near those who fear him; * yes, his glory dwells in our land.
Kindness and fidelity will meet; * justice and well-being embrace.
Fidelity shall sprout from the earth, * and justice lean down from heaven.
With a crash will Yahweh give his rain, * and our land will give its produce.
Justice will march before him; * beauty will follow in his steps.”
