Steadfast love [hesed] and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky. Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.” (Psalm 85:10–13, ESV)

The Zondervan NIV Study Bible comments on this passage: “One of the most beautiful pictures of restoration in Scripture.”

I would have to agree.

Only in God will true steadfast love [hesed], peace, righteousness, and faithfulness meet in perfect union together in service to God and to glorify God.
