TEXT Psalm 85 ESV Revive Us Again
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.
- REDEMPTION / What the Lord did in the past:
1 Lord, you were favorable to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 You forgave the iniquity of your people;you covered all their sin. Selah
3 You withdrew all your wrath;you turned from your hot anger.
The Lord: showed favor, restored fortunes, forgave iniquity, covered sin, withdrew wrath, turned from anger.
- RESTORATION / Prayer for the Lord to do it again:
4 Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us!
- REVIVAL / Rhetorical questions of the Lord:
5 Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
- REQUESTS / Prayer for the Lord to show and to speak:
7 Show us your steadfast love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.
- RIGHTEOUS RELATIONSHIPS / Hope-filled statements:
8 Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.
