Psalm 80

A Prayer for Restoration

For the choir director: according to “The Lilies.” A testimony of Asaph. A psalm.

Listen, Shepherd of Israel,

who leads Joseph like a flock;a

you who sit enthroned between the cherubim,b

shinec 2on Ephraim,

Benjamin, and Manasseh.a

Rally your power and come to save us.b

3Restore us, God;

make your face shine on us,a

so that we may be saved.b

4Lord God of Armies,

how long will you be angry

with your people’s prayers?a

5You fed them the bread of tears

and gave them a full measureA

of tears to drink.a

6You put us at odds with our neighbors;

our enemies mock us.a

7Restore us, God of Armies;

make your face shine on us, so that we may be saved.a

8You dug up a vine from Egypt;

you drove out the nations and planted it.a

9You cleared a place for it;

it took root and filled the land.a

10The mountains were covered by its shade,

and the mighty cedarsA with its branches.a

11It sent out sprouts toward the SeaA

and shoots toward the River.B a

12Why have you broken down its walls

so that all who pass by pick its fruit?a

13Boars from the forest tear at it

and creatures of the field feed on it.a

14Return, God of Armies.a

Look down from heaven and see;

take care of this vine,

15the rootA your right hand planted,

the sonB that you made strong for yourself.a

16It was cut down and burned;

theyA perish at the rebuke of your countenance.a

17Let your hand be with the man at your right hand,

with the son of man

you have made strong for yourself.a

18Then we will not turn away from you;

revive us, and we will call on your name.a

19Restore us, Lord, God of Armies;a

make your face shine on us, so that we may be saved.b
