PSALMS · Chapter 80
80:1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you that lead Joseph like a flock;
you that dwell between the cherubims, shine forth.
80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up your strength, and come and save us.
80:3 Turn us again, O God, and cause your face to shine; and we shall be saved.
80:4 O LORD God of hosts, how long will you be angry against the prayer of your people?
80:5 You feed them with the bread of tears; and give them tears to drink in great measure.
80:6 You make us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
80:7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause your face to shine; and we shall be saved.
80:8 You have brought a vine out of Egypt: you have cast out the heathen, and planted it.
80:9 You prepared room before it, and did cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
80:10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
80:11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
80:12 Why have you then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
80:13 The boar out of the wood does waste it, and the wild beast of the field does devour it.
80:14 Return, we plead to you, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
80:15 And the vineyard which your right hand has planted, and the branch that you made strong for yourself.
80:16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of your countenance.
80:17 Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand, upon the son of man whom you made strong for yourself.
80:18 So will not we go back from you: quicken us, and we will call upon your name.
80:19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause your face to shine; and we shall be saved.
