Psalm 80
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. [SET] TO “LILIES OF TESTIMONY.” A PSALM OF ASAPH. Shepherd of Israel, give ear, "" Leading Joseph as a flock, "" Inhabiting the cherubim—shine forth,

2Before Ephraim, and Benjamin, and Manasseh, "" Wake up Your might, and come for our salvation.

3O God, cause us to turn back, "" And cause Your face to shine, and we are saved.

4YHWH, God of Hosts, until when? You have burned against the prayer of Your people.

5You have caused them to eat bread of tears, "" And cause them to drink "" With tears a third time.

6You make us a strife to our neighbors, "" And our enemies mock at it.

7God of Hosts, turn us back, "" And cause Your face to shine, and we are saved.

8You bring a vine out of Egypt, "" You cast out nations, and plant it.

9You have looked before it, and root it, "" And it fills the land,

10Hills have been covered [with] its shadow, "" And its boughs [are] cedars of God.

11It sends forth its branches to the sea, "" And its shoots to the river.

12Why have You broken down its hedges, "" And everyone passing by the way has plucked it?

13A boar out of the forest tears it, "" And a wild beast of the fields grazes it.

14God of Hosts, turn back, we implore You, "" Look from the heavens, and see, and inspect this vine,

15And the root that Your right hand planted, "" And the branch You made strong for Yourself,

16Burned with fire—cut down, "" They perish from the rebuke of Your face.

17Let Your hand be on the man of Your right hand "" On the son of man You have strengthened for Yourself.

18And we do not go back from You, "" You revive us, and in Your Name we call.

19O YHWH, God of Hosts, turn us back, "" Cause Your face to shine, and we are saved!
