08.09.2015 Old Testament: Psa 85.10–13
To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 85–87 on August 9, In the year of our Lord 2015
By Don Ruhl
We do not have to choose between mercy and truth, or between righteousness and peace. Listen to the sons of Korah who wrote Psalm 85,
Mercy and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before Him,
And shall make His footsteps our pathway.
When righteousness and peace kiss one another, truth springs up and righteousness rains down, because the Lord, the Author of righteousness and peace, gives what humanity needs. Therefore, seek both righteousness and peace, and the God of heaven will take care of the rest.
