Ps 85 :

A national lament reminding God of past favors and forgiveness (2–4) and begging for forgiveness and grace now (5–8). A speaker represents the people who wait humbly with open hearts (9–10): God will be active on their behalf (11–14). The situation suggests the conditions of Judea during the early postexilic period, the fifth century B.C.; the thoughts are similar to those of postexilic prophets (Hg 1, 5–11; 2, 6–9 ).

85, 9 :

The prophet listens to God's revelation. Cf Hb 2, 1 .

85, 11–14 :

Divine activity is personified as pairs of virtues.
