80:1 For the Leader; upon Shoshannim. A testimony. A Psalm of Asaph.
80:2 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; Thou that art enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.
80:3 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Thy might, and come to save us.
80:4 O God, restore us; and cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
80:5 O the Lord God of hosts, how long wilt Thou be angry against the prayer of Thy people?
80:6 Thou hast fed them with the bread of tears, and given them tears to drink in large measure.
80:7 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours; and our enemies mock as they please.
80:8 O God of hosts, restore us; and cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
80:9 Thou didst pluck up a vine out of Egypt; Thou didst drive out the nations, and didst plant it.
80:10 Thou didst clear a place before it, and it took deep root, and filled the land.
80:11 The mountains were covered with the shadow of it, and the mighty cedars with the boughs thereof.
80:12 She sent out her branches unto the sea, and her shoots unto the River.
80:13 Why hast Thou broken down her fences, so that all they that pass by the way do pluck her?
80:14 The boar out of the wood doth ravage it, that which moveth in the field feedeth on it.
80:15 O God of hosts, return, we beseech Thee; look from heaven, and behold, and be mindful of this vine,
80:16 And of the stock which Thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that Thou madest strong for Thyself.
80:17 It is burned with fire, it is cut down; they perish at the rebuke of Thy countenance.
80:18 Let Thy hand be upon the man of Thy right hand, upon the son of man whom Thou madest strong for Thyself.
80:19 So shall we not turn back from Thee; quicken Thou us, and we will call upon Thy name.
80:20 O the Lord God of hosts, restore us; cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
