Psalms 80 (asv)

Psalms 80 (asv)

For the Chief Musician, set to Shoshanim Eduth.. A Psalm of Asaph.

80:1Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,

Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock;

Thou that sittest above the cherubim, shine forth.

80:2Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up thy might,

And come to save us.

80:3Turn us again, O God;

And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.

80:4O Jehovah God of hosts,

How long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?

80:5Thou hast fed them with the bread of tears,

And given them tears to drink in large measure.

80:6Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbors;

And our enemies laugh among themselves.

80:7Turn us again, O God of hosts;

And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.

80:8Thou broughtest a vine out of Egypt:

Thou didst drive out the nations, and plantedst it.

80:9Thou preparedst room before it,

And it took deep root, and filled the land.

80:10The mountains were covered with the shadow of it,

And cedars of God.

80:11It sent out its branches unto the sea,

And its shoots unto the River.

80:12Why hast thou broken down its walls,

So that all they that pass by the way do pluck it?

80:13The boar out of the wood doth ravage it,

And the wild beasts of the field feed on it.

80:14Turn again, we beseech thee, O God of hosts:

Look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine,

80:15And the stock which thy right hand planted,

And the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.

80:16It is burned with fire, it is cut down:

They perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.

80:17Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand,

Upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.

80:18So shall we not go back from thee:

Quicken thou us, and we will call upon thy name.

80:19Turn us again, O Jehovah God of hosts;

Cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
