Psalms 85

85:1 ęTo the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.Ľ LORD, thou hast been a favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

(a) They confess that Godís free mercy was the cause of their deliverance because he loved the land which he had chosen.
85:2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast b covered all their sin. Selah.
(b) You have buried them that they will not come into judgment.
85:3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned [thyself] from the c fierceness of thine anger.
(c) Not only in withdrawing your rod, but in forgiving sins, and in touching our hearts to confess them.
85:5 Wilt thou be angry with us d for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
(d) As in times past they had felt Godís mercies, so now being oppressed by the long continuance of evil, they pray to God that according to his nature he would be merciful to them.
85:7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy e salvation.
(e) He confesses that our salvation comes only from Godís mercy.
85:8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak f peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
(f) He will send all prosperity to his Church, when he has sufficiently corrected them, also by his punishments the faithful will learn to beware that they not return the same offences.
85:11 g Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
(g) Though for a time God thus exercises them with his rods, yet under the kingdom of Christ they should have peace and joy.
85:13 h Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set [us] in the way of his steps.
(h) Justice will then flourish and have free course and passage in every place.
