Psalm 80

Psalm 80[a]

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

Hear us, Shepherd of Israel,
    you who lead Joseph like a flock.
You who sit enthroned between the cherubim,
    shine forth before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.
Awaken your might;
    come and save us.

Restore us, O God;
    make your face shine on us,
    that we may be saved.

How long, Lord God Almighty,
    will your anger smolder
    against the prayers of your people?
You have fed them with the bread of tears;
    you have made them drink tears by the bowlful.
You have made us an object of derision[b] to our neighbors,
    and our enemies mock us.

Restore us, God Almighty;
    make your face shine on us,
    that we may be saved.

You transplanted a vine from Egypt;
    you drove out the nations and planted it.
You cleared the ground for it,
    and it took root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade,
    the mighty cedars with its branches.
11 Its branches reached as far as the Sea,[c]
    its shoots as far as the River.[d]

12 Why have you broken down its walls
    so that all who pass by pick its grapes?
13 Boars from the forest ravage it,
    and insects from the fields feed on it.
14 Return to us, God Almighty!
    Look down from heaven and see!
Watch over this vine,
15     the root your right hand has planted,
    the son[e] you have raised up for yourself.

16 Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire;
    at your rebuke your people perish.
17 Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand,
    the son of man you have raised up for yourself.
18 Then we will not turn away from you;
    revive us, and we will call on your name.

19 Restore us, Lord God Almighty;
    make your face shine on us,
    that we may be saved.

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。
