The LORD gives what is good
I listen carefully to what God the LORD is saying,
for he speaks peace to his people, his faithful ones.
But let them not return to their foolish ways.
Surely his salvation is near to those who honor him;
our land will be filled with his glory.
Unfailing love and truth have met together.
Righteousness and peace have kissed!
Truth springs up from the earth,
and righteousness smiles down from heaven.
Yes, the LORD pours down his blessings.
Our land will yield its bountiful crops.
Righteousness goes as a herald before him,
preparing the way for his steps.
Psalm 85:8-13 NLT
