85:1Thou hast been favourable, Jehovah, unto thy land; thou hast turned the captivity of Jacob:
85:2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people; thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
85:3Thou hast withdrawn all thy wrath; thou hast turned from the fierceness of thine anger.
85:4Bring us back, O God of our salvation, and cause thine indignation toward us to cease.
85:5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger from generation to generation?
85:6Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice in thee?
85:7Shew us thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, and grant us thy salvation.
85:8I will hear what łGod, Jehovah, will speak; for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his godly ones: 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.
85:10Loving-kindness 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 the heavens.
85:12Jehovah also will give what is good, and our land shall yield its increase.
85:13Righteousness shall go before him, and shall set his footsteps on the way.
86:1Incline thine ear, Jehovah, answer me; for I am afflicted and needy.
86:2Keep my soul, for I am godly; O thou my God, save thy servant who confideth in thee.
86:3Be gracious unto me, O Lord; for unto thee do I call all the day.
86:4Rejoice the soul of thy servant; for unto thee, Lord, do I lift up my soul.
86:5For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive, and art of great loving-kindness unto all that call upon thee.
86:6Give ear, O Jehovah, unto my prayer, and attend to the voice of my supplications.
86:7In the day of my distress I will call upon thee, for thou wilt answer me.
86:8Among the gods there is none like unto thee, Lord, and there is nothing 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, thou alone.
86:11Teach me thy way, Jehovah; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
86:12I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart; and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
86:13For great is thy loving-kindness toward me, and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.
86:14O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assembly of the violent seek after my soul, and they have not set thee before them.
86:15But thou, Lord, art a łGod merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in goodness and truth.
86:16Turn toward me, and be gracious unto 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; for thou, Jehovah, hast helped me and comforted me.
87:1His foundation is in the mountains of holiness.
87:2Jehovah loveth the gates of Zion more than all the habitations of Jacob.
87:3Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.
87:4I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon among them that know me; behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia: this man was born there.
87:5And of Zion it shall be said, This one and that one was born in her; and the Most High himself shall establish her.
87:6Jehovah will count, when he inscribeth the peoples, This man was born there. Selah.
87:7As well the singers as the dancers shall say, All my springs are in thee.
