Psalm for Monday in the Second Week of Advent

Psalm 85:8-13

8     I will listen to what the LORD God is saying,*
       for he is speaking peace to his faithful people 
       and to those who turn their hearts to him.

9     Truly, his salvation is very near to those who fear him,*
       that his glory may dwell in our land.

10   Mercy and truth have met together;*
       righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11    Truth shall spring up from the earth,*
        and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

12    The LORD will indeed grant prosperity,*
        and our land will yield its increase.

13    Righteousness shall go before him,*
        and peace shall be a pathway to his feet.
