A Prayer for the Revival and Restoration of Israel

Psalm 85 (KJV with section headings added)
Vv 1-3 Former mercies / future blessing
A Psalm of Asaph
1 LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

Vv 4-7 Petition for revival and salvation
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

Vv 8-9 Waiting for God's voice
8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

Vv 10-13 Abundant blessing, righteousness and peace in the land
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.


Kind regards

Howdy Bronzesnake,

Greetings. I appreciate your comment.

My original post was incorrect as I stated that it was "A Psalm of Asaph" but the correct title is "A Psalm for the sons of Korah." This title has a significant lesson for us. Although Korah perished, his children were saved when they separated from the tent of Korah.

As a brief expansion,  I believe that the psalm would have many applications.
1. The original application at the time of these sons of Korah. This could have been in David's time, or some crisis in Israel's history eg the Assyrian invasion at the time of Hezekiah. If written in David's time, Hezekiah would take great comfort in this psalm in his own trials.
2. Both the events of David and Hezekiah's times are foreshadowings of Christ in his suffering and his ultimate blessing.
3. The sufferings and blessings of Christ also are typical of the sufferings and blessing for the followers of Christ.
4. The psalm also has relevance to Israel in the land today, their coming time of trouble, their plea for deliverance and their ultimate salvation and blessing in the land.

Kind regards
Trevor
