Psalm 80

God Implored to Rescue His People from Their Calamities.

1 Oh, give ear, 1Shepherd of Israel, You who lead 2Joseph like a flock; You who 3are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!
2 Before 4Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, 5stir up Your power And come to save us!
3 O God, 6restore us And 7cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.
4 O 8LORD God of hosts, 9How long * will You be angry with the prayer of Your people?
5 You have fed them with the 10bread of tears, And You have made them to drink tears in large measure.
6 You make us an object of contention 11to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 O God of hosts, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.
8 You removed a 12vine from Egypt; You 13drove out the nations and 14planted it.
9 You 15cleared the ground before it, And it 16took deep root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shadow, And the cedars of God with its 17boughs.
11 It was sending out its branches 18to the sea And its shoots to the River.
12 Why have You 19broken down its hedges, So that all who pass that way pick its fruit?
13 A boar from the forest 20eats it away And whatever moves in the field feeds on it.
14 O God of hosts, 21turn again now, we beseech You; 22Look down from heaven and see, and take care of this vine,
15 Even the 23shoot which Your right hand has planted, And on the son whom You have strengthened for Yourself.
16 It is 24burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the 25rebuke of Your countenance.
17 Let 26Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You 27made strong for Yourself.
18 Then we shall not 28turn back from You; 29Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.
19 O LORD God of hosts, 30restore us; Cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.
