Psalm 80
Douay-Rheims Bible

Hear Us, Shepherd of Israel

1{79:1}Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, a testimony for Asaph, a psalm. [2] Give ear, O thou that rulest Israel: thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep. Thou that sittest upon the cherubims, shine forth

2{79:3}Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasses. Stir up thy might, and come to save us.

3{79:4}Convert us, O God: and shew us thy face, and we shall be saved.

4{79:5}O Lord God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy servant?

5{79:6}How long wilt thou feed us with the bread of tears: and give us for our drink tears in measure?

6{79:7}Thou hast made us to be a contradiction to our neighbours: and our enemies have scoffed at us.

7{79:8}O God of hosts, convert us: and shew thy face, and we shall be saved.

8{79:9}Thou hast brought a vineyard out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the Gentiles and planted it.

9{79:10}Thou wast the guide of its journey in its sight: thou plantedst the roots thereof, and it filled the land.

10{79:11}The shadow of it covered the hills: and the branches thereof the cedars of God.

11{79:12}It stretched forth its branches unto the sea, and its boughs unto the river.

12{79:13}Why hast thou broken down the hedge thereof, so that all they who pass by the way do pluck it?

13{79:14}The boar out of the wood hath laid it waste: and a singular wild beast hath devoured it.

14{79:15}Turn again, O God of hosts, look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vineyard:

15{79:16}And perfect the same which thy right hand hath planted: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself.

16{79:17}Things set on fire and dug down shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.

17{79:18}Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself.

18{79:19}And we depart not from thee, thou shalt quicken us: and we will call upon thy name.

19{79:20}O Lord God of hosts, convert us and shew thy face, and we shall be saved.
