Amplified Bible

Psalm 80

God Implored to Rescue His People from Their Calamities.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Lilies, a Testimony.” A Psalm of Asaph.

1Hear us O Shepherd of Israel,
You who lead Joseph like a flock;
You who sit enthroned above the cherubim [of the ark of the covenant], shine forth!

Before [a]Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power
And come to save us!

Restore us, O God;
Cause Your face to shine on us [with favor and approval], and we will be saved.


O Lord God of hosts,
How long will You be angry with the prayers of Your people?

You have fed them the bread of tears,
And You have made them drink [bitter] tears in abundance.

You make us an object of contention to our neighbors,
And our enemies laugh [at our suffering] among themselves.

Restore us, O God of hosts;
And cause Your face to shine on us [with favor and approval], and we will be saved.


You uprooted a vine (Israel) from Egypt;
You drove out the [Canaanite] nations and planted the vine [in Canaan].

You cleared away the ground before it,
And it took deep root and filled the land.
10 
The mountains were covered with its shadow,
And its branches were like the cedars of God.
11 
Israel sent out its branches to the [Mediterranean] Sea,
And its branches to the [Euphrates] River.
12 
Why have You broken down its [b]walls and hedges,
So that all who pass by pick its fruit?
13 
A boar from the woods eats it away,
And the insects of the field feed on it.

14 
Turn again [in favor to us], O God of hosts;
Look down from heaven and see, and take care of this vine,
15 
Even the stock which Your right hand has planted,
And [look down on] the son that You have reared and strengthened for Yourself.
16 
It is burned with fire, it is cut down;
They perish at the rebuke of Your [angry] appearance.
17 
Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand,
Upon the son of man whom You have made strong for Yourself.
18 
Then we shall not turn back from You;
Revive us and we will call on Your name.
19 
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
Cause Your face to shine on us [in favor and approval], and we shall be saved.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 80:2 It is believed that these three tribes represented all twelve tribes of Israel, Benjamin being incorporated into Judah, Manasseh inhabiting the country beyond the Jordan, and Ephraim the remainder of the land. It was natural for the Israelites to think of the three in one group, for they had camped together on the west side of the tabernacle during the years in the wilderness, and they were also the only descendants of Jacob’s wife Rachel.
  2. Psalm 80:12 I.e. dry-stone walls, built without mortar from loose stones in the fields.

詩篇 80

為國家復興祈求

亞薩的詩,交給樂長,調用「作證的百合花」。

11-2 以色列的牧者啊,
你像照顧羊群一樣帶領約瑟的子孫,
求你垂聽我們的祈禱。
坐在基路伯天使之上的耶和華啊,
求你向以法蓮、便雅憫和瑪拿西發出光輝,
求你施展大能來拯救我們。
上帝啊,求你復興我們,
用你臉上的榮光照耀我們,
使我們得救。
萬軍之上帝耶和華啊,
你因你子民的禱告而發怒,
要到何時呢?
你使我們以淚洗面,
以哀傷果腹,
又使我們成為鄰國爭奪的對象,
仇敵都嘲笑我們。
萬軍之上帝啊,
求你復興我們,
用你臉上的榮光照耀我們,
使我們得救。
你從埃及帶出一棵葡萄樹,
趕走外族人,把它栽種起來。
你為它開墾土地,
它就扎根生長,佈滿這片土地。
10 它的樹蔭遮蓋群山,
枝子遮蔽香柏樹。
11 它的枝條延伸到地中海,
嫩枝伸展到幼發拉底河。
12 你為何拆毀了它的籬笆,
讓路人隨意摘取葡萄呢?
13 林中的野豬蹂躪它,
野獸吞吃它。
14 萬軍之上帝啊,
求你回來,
求你在天上垂顧我們這棵葡萄樹,
15 這棵你親手栽種和培育的葡萄樹。
16 這樹被砍倒,被焚燒,
願你發怒毀滅仇敵。
17 求你扶持你所揀選的人,你為自己所養育的人。
18 我們必不再背棄你,
求你復興我們,
我們必敬拜你。
19 萬軍之上帝耶和華啊,
求你復興我們,
用你臉上的榮光照耀我們,
使我們得救。
