Verses 1-13

Psalms 85:0

All Promised Blessings Realized

1. What grace has done (Psalms 85:1-3 )

2. Prayer for the fulfilment (Psalms 85:4-9 )

3. Righteousness and peace (Psalms 85:10-13 )

What will come to Israel when Christ returns to be their King is blessedly made known in the opening verses of this other Korah Psalm. Favour will rest upon the land; the captivity of Jacob is brought back, their iniquity is forgiven and their sin covered; His wrath is turned away. Hence they pray that all this may speedily be accomplished as it surely will in the days when heaven will send Him back. Then He will speak peace to His people and His saints and glory will dwell in the land, even their land (Psalms 85:8-9 ). Then righteousness and peace will kiss each other and truth shall spring out of the earth.
