2 80:1To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim Eduth, A Psalm of Asaph. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubim, shine forth.
3 80:2Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.
4 80:3Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
5 80:4O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
6 80:5Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
7 80:6Thou makest us a strife to our neighbors: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
8 80:7Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
9 80:8Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
10 80:9Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
11 80:10The hills were covered with the shade of it, and its boughs were like the goodly cedars.
12 80:11She sent out her boughs to the sea, and her branches to the river.
13 80:12Why hast thou then broke down her hedges, so that all they who pass by the way do pluck her?
14 80:13The boar from the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
15 80:14Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
16 80:15And the vineyard which thy right hand planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
17 80:16It is burnt with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
18 80:17Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
19 80:18So will we not go back from thee: revive us, and we will call upon thy name.
20 80:19Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
