1 (79-1) <Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, a testimony for Asaph, a psalm.> (79-2) Give ear, O thou that rulest Israel: thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep. Thou that sittest upon the cherubims, shine forth 2 (79-3) Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasses. Stir up thy might, and come to save us. 3 (79-4) Convert us, O God: and shew us thy face, and we shall be saved. 4 (79-5) O Lord God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy servant? 5 (79-6) How long wilt thou feed us with the bread of tears: and give us for our drink tears in measure? 6 (79-7) Thou hast made us to be a contradiction to our neighbours: and our enemies have scoffed at us. 7 (79-8) O God of hosts, convert us: and shew thy face, and we shall be saved. 8 (79-9) Thou hast brought a vineyard out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the Gentiles and planted it. 9 (79-10) Thou wast the guide of its journey in its sight: thou plantedst the roots thereof, and it filled the land. 10 (79-11) The shadow of it covered the hills: and the branches thereof the cedars of God. 11 (79-12) It stretched forth its branches unto the sea, and its boughs unto the river. 12 (79-13) Why hast thou broken down the hedge thereof, so that all they who pass by the way do pluck it? 13 (79-14) The boar out of the wood hath laid it waste: and a singular wild beast hath devoured it. 14 (79-15) Turn again, O God of hosts, look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vineyard: 15 (79-16) And perfect the same which thy right hand hath planted: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself. 16 (79-17) Things set on fire and dug down shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. 17 (79-18) Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself. 18 (79-19) And we depart not from thee, thou shalt quicken us: and we will call upon thy name. 19 (79-20) O Lord God of hosts, convert us and shew thy face, and we shall be saved.
1 (80-1) <Unto the end, for the winepresses, a psalm for Asaph himself.> (80-2) Rejoice to God our helper: sing aloud to the God of Jacob. 2 (80-3) Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel: the pleasant psaltery with the harp. 3 (80-4) Blow up the trumpet on the new moon, on the noted day of your solemnity. 4 (80-5) For it is a commandment in Israel, and a judgment to the God of Jacob. 5 (80-6) He ordained it for a testimony in Joseph, when he came out of the land of Egypt: he heard a tongue which he knew not. 6 (80-7) He removed his back from the burdens: his hands had served in baskets. 7 (80-8) Thou calledst upon me in affliction, and I delivered thee: I heard thee in the secret place of tempest: I proved thee at the waters of contradiction. 8 (80-9) Hear, O my people, and I will testify to thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken to me, 9 (80-10) there shall be no new god in thee: neither shalt thou adore a strange god. 10 (80-11) For I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. 11 (80-12) But my people heard not my voice: and Israel hearkened not to me. 12 (80-13) So I let them go according to the desires of their heart: they shall walk in their own inventions. 13 (80-14) If my people had heard me: if Israel had walked in my ways: 14 (80-15) I should soon have humbled their enemies, and laid my hand on them that troubled them. 15 (80-16) The enemies of the Lord have lied to him: and their time shall be for ever. 16 (80-17) And he fed them with the fat of wheat, and filled them with honey out of the rock.
1 (81-1) <A psalm for Asaph.> God hath stood in the congregation of gods: and being in the midst of them he judgeth gods. 2 (81-2) How long will you judge unjustly: and accept the persons of the wicked? 3 (81-3) Judge for the needy and fatherless: do justice to the humble and the poor. 4 (81-4) Rescue the poor; and deliver the needy out of the hand of the sinner. 5 (81-5) They have not known nor understood: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be moved. 6 (81-6) I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High. 7 (81-7) But you like men shall die: and shall fall like one of the princes. 8 (81-8) Arise, O God, judge thou the earth: for thou shalt inherit among all the nations.
1 (82-1) <A canticle of a psalm for Asaph.> (82-2) O God, who shall be like to thee? hold not thy peace, neither be thou still, O God. 2 (82-3) For lo, thy enemies have made a noise: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 (82-4) They have taken a malicious counsel against thy people, and have consulted against thy saints. 4 (82-5) They have said: Come and let us destroy them, so that they be not a nation: and let the name of Israel be remembered no more. 5 (82-6) For they have contrived with one consent: they have made a covenant together against thee, 6 (82-7) The tabernacle of the Edomites, and the Ishmahelites: Moab, and the Agarens, 7 (82-8) Gebal, and Ammon and Amalec: the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre. 8 (82-9) Yea, and the Assyrian also is joined with them: they are come to the aid of the sons of Lot. 9 (82-10) Do to them as thou didst to Madian and to Sisara: as to Jabin at the brook of Cisson. 10 (82-11) Who perished at Endor: and became as dung for the earth. 11 (82-12) Make their princes like Oreb, and Zeb, and Zebee, and Salmana. All their princes, 12 (82-13) Who have said: Let us possess the sanctuary of God for an inheritance. 13 (82-14) O my God, make them like a wheel; and as stubble before the wind. 14 (82-15) As fire which burneth the wood: and as a flame burning mountains: 15 (82-16) So shalt thou pursue them with thy tempest: and shalt trouble them in thy wrath. 16 (82-17) Fill their faces with shame; and they shall seek thy name, O Lord. 17 (82-18) Let them be ashamed and troubled for ever and ever: and let them be confounded and perish. 18 (82-19) And let them know that the Lord is thy name: thou alone art the most High over all the earth.
1 (83-1) <Unto the end, for the winepresses, a psalm for the sons of Core.> (83-2) How lovely are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts! 2 (83-3) my soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord. My heart and my flesh have rejoiced in the living God. 3 (83-4) For the sparrow hath found herself a house, and the turtle a nest for herself where she may lay her young ones: Thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my king and my God. 4 (83-5) Blessed are they that dwell in thy house, O Lord: they shall praise thee for ever and ever. 5 (83-6) Blessed is the man whose help is from thee: in his heart he hath disposed to ascend by steps, 6 (83-7) In the vale of tears, in the place which he hath set. 7 (83-8) For the lawgiver shall give a blessing, they shall go from virtue to virtue: the God of gods shall be seen in Sion. 8 (83-9) O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. 9 (83-10) Behold, O God our protector: and look on the face of thy Christ. 10 (83-11) For better is one day in thy courts above thousands. I have chosen to be an abject in the house of my God, rather than to dwell in the tabernacles of sinners. 11 (83-12) For God loveth mercy and truth: the Lord will give grace and glory. 12 (83-13) He will not deprive of good things them that walk in innocence: O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
1 (84-1) <Unto the end, for the sons of Core, a psalm.> (84-2) Lord, thou hast blessed thy land: thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. 2 (84-3) Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people: thou hast covered all their sins. 3 (84-4) Thou hast mitigated all thy anger: thou hast turned away from the wrath of thy indignation. 4 (84-5) Convert us, O God our saviour: and turn off thy anger from us. 5 (84-6) Wilt thou be angry with us for ever: or wilt thou extend thy wrath from generation to generation? 6 (84-7) Thou wilt turn, O God, and bring us to life: and thy people shall rejoice in thee. 7 (84-8) Shew us, O Lord, thy mercy; and grant us thy salvation. 8 (84-9) I will hear what the Lord God will speak in me: for he will speak peace unto his people: And unto his saints: and unto them that are converted to the heart. 9 (84-10) Surely his salvation is near to them that fear him:that glory may dwell in our land. 10 (84-11) Mercy and truth have met each other: justice and peace have kissed. 11 (84-12) Truth is sprung out of the earth: and justice hath looked down from heaven. 12 (84-13) For the Lord will give goodness: and our earth shall yield her fruit. 13 (84-14) Justice shall walk before him: and ,shall set his steps in the way.
