Psalm 80

Psalm 80

For the director of music. A psalm of Asaph to the tune of “The Lilies of the Covenant.”

Shepherd of Israel, hear us.
    You lead the people of Joseph like a flock.
    You sit on your throne between the cherubim.
Show your glory
    to the people of Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.
Call your strength into action.
    Come and save us.

God, make us new again.
    May you be pleased with us.
    Then we will be saved.

Lord God, you rule over all.
    How long will you be angry?
    Will you be angry with your people even when they pray to you?
You have given us tears as our food.
    You have made us drink tears by the bowlful.
You have let our neighbors mock us.
    Our enemies laugh at us.

God who rules over all, make us new again.
    May you be pleased with us.
    Then we will be saved.

You brought Israel out of Egypt.
    Israel was like a vine.
After you drove the nations out of Canaan,
    you planted the vine in their land.
You prepared the ground for it.
    It took root and spread out over the whole land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade.
    The shade of its branches covered the mighty cedar trees.
11 Your vine sent its branches out all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.
    They reached as far as the Euphrates River.

12 Why have you broken down the walls around your vine?
    Now all who pass by it can pick its grapes.
13 Wild pigs from the forest destroy it.
    Insects from the fields feed on it.
14 God who rules over all, return to us!
    Look down from heaven and see us!
Watch over your vine.
15     Guard the root you have planted with your powerful right hand.
    Take care of the branch you have raised up for yourself.

16 Your vine has been cut down and burned in the fire.
    You have been angry with us, and we are dying.
17 May you honor the people at your right hand.
    May you honor the nation you have raised up for yourself.
18 Then we won’t turn away from you.
    Give us new life. We will worship you.

19 Lord God who rules over all, make us new again.
    May you be pleased with us.
    Then we will be saved.

Psalm 80

God Implored to Rescue His People from Their Calamities.

For the choir director; set to [a]El Shoshannim; [b]Eduth. A Psalm of Asaph.

1Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel,
You who lead Joseph like a flock;
You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!
Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power
And come to save us!
O God, restore us
And cause Your face to shine upon us, [c]and we will be saved.

O Lord God of hosts,
How long will You [d]be angry with the prayer of Your people?
You have fed them with the bread of tears,
And You have made them to drink tears in [e]large measure.
You make us [f]an object of contention to our neighbors,
And our enemies laugh among themselves.
O God of hosts, restore us
And cause Your face to shine upon us, [g]and we will be saved.

You removed a vine from Egypt;
You drove out the [h]nations and planted it.
You cleared the ground before it,
And it took deep root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shadow,
And [i]the cedars of God with its boughs.
11 It was sending out its branches to the sea
And its shoots to the River.
12 Why have You broken down its [j]hedges,
So that all who pass that way pick its fruit?
13 A boar from the forest eats it away
And whatever moves in the field feeds on it.

14 O God of hosts, turn again now, we beseech You;
Look down from heaven and see, and take care of this vine,
15 Even the [k]shoot which Your right hand has planted,
And on the [l]son whom You have [m]strengthened for Yourself.
16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down;
They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.
17 Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand,
Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.
18 Then we shall not turn back from You;
Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.
19 O Lord God of hosts, restore us;
Cause Your face to shine upon us, [n]and we will be saved.
