Restore us, O God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.18
You brought a vine2 out of Egypt; you drove out3 the nations and planted4 it.
You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land.
The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches.
It sent out its boughs to the Sea,a its shoots as far as the River.b512
Why have you broken down its walls6 so that all who pass by pick its grapes?
Boars from the forest ravage7 it and the creatures of the field feed on it.
Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see!8 Watch over this vine,
the root your right hand has planted, the sonc you have raised up for yourself.
Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire;9 at your rebuke10 your people perish.
Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man11 you have raised up for yourself.
