Psalms 85:10-11

Context

85:10 Loyal love and faithfulness meet; 1 

deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss. 2 

85:11 Faithfulness grows from the ground,

and deliverance looks down from the sky. 3 

1 tn The psalmist probably uses the perfect verbal forms in v. 10 in a dramatic or rhetorical manner, describing what he anticipates as if it were already occurring or had already occurred.

2 sn Deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss. The psalmist personifies these abstract qualities to emphasize that God’s loyal love and faithfulness will yield deliverance and peace for his people.

3 sn The psalmist already sees undeniable signs of God’s faithfulness and expects deliverance to arrive soon.
