Yahweh brings peace (Ps 85:8-85:9)

“Let me hear what

God Yahweh will speak.

He will speak peace

To his people.

He will speak peace

To his faithful.

He will speak peace

To those who turn to him in their hearts.

Surely his salvation is at hand

For those who fear him.

Thus glory may dwell in our land.”

The psalmist wanted to hear Yahweh speak. He wanted to hear him speak about peace. He wanted Yahweh to bring peace to his people. He wanted Yahweh to bring peace to his faithful ones who turned to him in their hearts. Salvation was at hand for those who feared Yahweh because the glory of God dwelt in the land. This glory of God probably refers to the Temple in Jerusalem.
