Psalm 85:1-7Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Prayer for the Restoration of God’s Favor

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

85 Lord, thou wast favorable to thy land;
    thou didst restore the fortunes of Jacob.
Thou didst forgive the iniquity of thy people;
    thou didst pardon all their sin. Selah
Thou didst withdraw all thy wrath;
    thou didst turn from thy hot anger.

Restore us again, O God of our salvation,
    and put away thy indignation toward us!
Wilt thou be angry with us for ever?
    Wilt thou prolong thy anger to all generations?
Wilt thou not revive us again,
    that thy people may rejoice in thee?
Show us thy steadfast love, O Lord,
    and grant us thy salvation.
