8 You brought us from Egypt as though we were a tender vine; you drove away the pagan nations and transplanted us into your land. 8 You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it.
9 You cleared the ground for us, and we took root and filled the land. 9 You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with our shade; the mighty cedars were covered with our branches. 10 The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches.

14 Come back, we beg you, O God Almighty. Look down from heaven and see our plight. Watch over and care for this vine 14 Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine,
15 that you yourself have planted, this son you have raised for yourself. 15 the root your right hand has planted, the son you have raised up for yourself.
16 For we are chopped up and burned by our enemies. May they perish at the sight of your frown. 16 Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire; at your rebuke your people perish.
17 Strengthen the man you love, the son of your choice. 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 will never forsake you again. Revive us so we can call on your name once more. 18 Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name.
19 Turn us again to yourself, O LORD God Almighty. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved. 19 Restore us, O LORD God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
