Psalm 85-87

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Psalm 85

Yahweh, you have been favorable to your land;

You have brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2 You have forgiven the iniquity of your people;

You have covered all their sin.

3 You have taken away all your wrath;

You have turned yourself from the fierceness of your anger.

4 Turn us, O Elohim of our salvation,

And cause your indignation toward us to cease.

5 Will you be angry with us forever?

Will you draw out your anger to all generations?

6 Will you not quicken us again,

That your people may rejoice in you?

7 Show us your lovingkindness, O Yahweh,

And grant us your salvation.

8 I will hear what El Yahweh will speak;

For he will speak peace to his people, and to his saints:

But let them not turn again to folly.

9 Surely his salvation is near them that fear him,

That glory, may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth have met together;

Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth springs out of the earth;

And righteousness has looked down from heaven.

12 Yes, Yahweh will give that which is good;

And our land shall yield its increase.

13 Righteousness shall go before him,

And shall make his footsteps a way to walk in.



A Prayer of David.


Psalm 86

Bow down your ear, O Yahweh, and answer me;

For I am poor and needy.

2 Preserve my soul; for I am righteous:

O you my Elohim, save your servant that trusts in you.

3 Be merciful to me, O Yahweh;

For to you do I cry all the day long.

4 Rejoice the soul of your servant;

For to you, O Yahweh, do I lift up my soul.

5 For you, Yahweh, are good, and ready to forgive,

And abundant in lovingkindness to all them that call upon you.

6 Give ear, O Yahweh, to my prayer;

And listen to the voice of my supplications.

7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon you;

For you will answer me.

8 There is none like you among the elohim, O Yahweh;

Neither are there any works like to your works.

9 All nations whom you have made shall come and worship before you, O Yahweh;

And they shall glorify your name.

10 For you are great, and do wondrous things:

You are Elohim alone.

11 Teach me your way, O Yahweh;

I will walk in your truth:

Unite my heart to fear your name.

12 I will praise you, O Yahweh my Elohim, with my whole heart;

And I will glorify your name for evermore.

13 For great is your lovingkindness toward me;

And you have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14 O Elohim, the proud have risen up against me,

And a company of violent men have sought after my soul,

And have not set you before them.

15 But you, O Yahweh, are an El merciful and gracious,

Slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

16 Oh turn to me, and have mercy upon me;

Give your strength to your servant,

And save the son of your handmaid.

17 Show me a token for good,

That they who hate me may see it, and be put to shame.

Because you, Yahweh, have helped me, and comforted me.




A Psalm of the sons of Korah; a Song.


Psalm 87

His foundation is in the holy mountains.

2 Yahweh loves the gates of Zion

More than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of you,

O city of Elohim.


4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon as among them that know me:

Behold, Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia:

This one was born there.

5 Yes, of Zion it shall be said,

This one and that one was born in her;

And the Most High himself will establish her.

6 Yahweh will count, when he writes up the peoples,

This one was born there.


7 They that sing as well as they that dance shall say,

All my fountains are in you.



A Song, a Psalm of the sons of Korah; for the Chief Musician; set to Mahalath Leannoth. Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.
