Turn us again, O God, and cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt Thou be angry against the prayer of Thy people?
Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among themselves.
Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; Thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
Thou preparedst room for it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
Why hast Thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they that pass by the way do pluck her?
The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
