Psalms 85:1-2

Context
Psalm 85 1 

For the music director; written by the Korahites, a psalm.

85:1 O Lord, you showed favor to your land;

you restored the well-being of Jacob. 2 

85:2 You pardoned 3  the wrongdoing of your people;

you forgave 4  all their sin. (Selah)

1 sn Psalm 85. God’s people recall how he forgave their sins in the past, pray that he might now restore them to his favor, and anticipate renewed blessings.

2 tn Heb “you turned with a turning [toward] Jacob.” The Hebrew term שְׁבוּת (shÿvut) is apparently a cognate accusative of שׁוּב (shuv). See Pss 14:7; 53:6.

3 tn Heb “lifted up.”

4 tn Heb “covered over.”
