2 to the people of Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Call your strength into action. Come and save us. 2 before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might; come and save us.
3 God, make us new again. Let your face smile on us with favor. Then we will be saved. 3 Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
4 LORD God who rules over all, how long will your anger burn against the prayers of your people? 4 O LORD God Almighty, how long will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people?
5 You have given us tears as our food. You have made us drink tears by the bowlful. 5 You have fed them with the bread of tears; you have made them drink tears by the bowlful.
6 You have let our neighbors fight against us. Our enemies laugh at us. 6 You have made us a source of contention to our neighbors, and our enemies mock us.
7 God who rules over all, make us new again. Let your face smile on us with favor. Then we will be saved. 7 Restore us, O God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
8 You brought Israel out of Egypt. Israel was like a vine. After you drove the nations out of Canaan, you planted the vine in their land. 8 You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it.
9 You prepared the ground for it. It took root and spread out over the whole land. 9 You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade. The shade of its branches covered the mighty cedar trees. 10 The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches.
11 Your vine sent its branches out all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. They reached as far as the Euphrates River. 11 It sent out its boughs to the Sea, its shoots as far as the River.
12 Why have you broken down the walls around your vine? Now all who pass by it can pick its grapes. 12 Why have you broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its grapes?
13 Wild pigs from the forest destroy it. The creatures of the field feed on it. 13 Boars from the forest ravage it and the creatures of the field feed on it.
14 God who rules over all, return to us! Look down from heaven and see us! Watch over your vine. 14 Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine,
15 Guard the root you have planted with your powerful right hand. Take care of the branch you have raised up for yourself. 15 the root your right hand has planted, the son you have raised up for yourself.
16 Your vine has been cut down. Fire has burned it up. You have been angry with us, and we are dying. 16 Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire; at your rebuke your people perish.
17 May you honor the people at your right hand. May you honor the nation you have raised up for yourself. 17 Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised up for yourself.
18 Then we won't turn away from you. Give us new life. We will worship you. 18 Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name.
19 LORD God who rules over all, make us new again. Let your face smile on us with favor. Then we will be saved. 19 Restore us, O LORD God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
