The Book Of Psalms
Psalms 85 and 86
85:1 Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
85:2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
85:3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
85:4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
85:5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
85:7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
85:8 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.
85:9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
85:12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
85:13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
86:1 Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.
86:2 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
86:3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.
86:4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
86:5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
86:6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
86:8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
86:9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
86:10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.
86:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
86:12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
86:13 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
86:14 O 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.
86:15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
86:16 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
86:17 Shew 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.
