Psalm for Wednesday in the Third 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 for his feet.
