The third book of Psalms, song 85, King James Version

Psalm 85

   To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.
   1 LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
   2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
   3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
   4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
   5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
   6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
   7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
   8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
   9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
   10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
   11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
   12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
   13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
