Get out of bed - you've slept long enough! Come on the run before it's too late. NIV 2 before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might; come and save us. MSG 3 God, come back! Smile your blessing smile: That will be our salvation. NIV 3 Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved. MSG 4 God, God of the angel armies, how long will you smolder like a sleeping volcano while your people call for fire and brimstone? NIV 4 O LORD God Almighty, how long will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people? MSG 5 You put us on a diet of tears, bucket after bucket of salty tears to drink. NIV 5 You have fed them with the bread of tears; you have made them drink tears by the bowlful. MSG 6 You make us look ridiculous to our friends; our enemies poke fun day after day.

MSG 8 Remember how you brought a young vine from Egypt, cleared out the brambles and briers and planted your very own vineyard? NIV 8 You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it. MSG 9 You prepared the good earth, you planted her roots deep; the vineyard filled the land. NIV 9 You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land. MSG 10 Your vine soared high and shaded the mountains, even dwarfing the giant cedars. NIV 10 The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches. MSG 11 Your vine ranged west to the Sea, east to the River. NIV 11 It sent out its boughs to the Sea, its shoots as far as the River. MSG 12 So why do you no longer protect your vine? Trespassers pick its grapes at will; NIV 12 Why have you broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its grapes? MSG 13 Wild pigs crash through and crush it, and the mice nibble away at what's left. NIV 13 Boars from the forest ravage it and the creatures of the field feed on it. MSG 14 God of the angel armies, turn our way! Take a good look at what's happened and attend to this vine. NIV 14 Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine, MSG 15 Care for what you once tenderly planted - the vine you raised from a shoot. NIV 15 the root your right hand has planted, the son you have raised up for yourself. MSG 16 And those who dared to set it on fire - give them a look that will kill! NIV 16 Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire; at your rebuke your people perish. MSG 17 Then take the hand of your once-favorite child, the child you raised to adulthood. NIV 17 Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised up for yourself. MSG 18 We will never turn our back on you; breathe life into our lungs so we can shout your name! NIV 18 Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name. MSG 19 God, God of the angel armies, come back! Smile your blessing smile: That will be our salvation. NIV 19 Restore us, O LORD God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
