Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

85:1LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

85:2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

85:3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

85:4Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.

85:5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

85:6Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

85:7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

85:8I 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.

85:9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

85:10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

85:11Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

85:12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.

85:13Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.

86:1Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.

86:2Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

86:3Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.

86:4Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

86:5For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

86:6Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

86:7In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.

86:8Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.

86:9All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.

86:10For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.

86:11Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

86:12I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.

86:13For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

86:14O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.

86:15But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

86:16O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.

86:17Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.

87:1His foundation is in the holy mountains.

87:2The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

87:3Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

87:4I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there.

87:5And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

87:6The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

87:7As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.
