Psalm 80
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1Shepherd of Israel, listen! The one who leads Joseph like a flock, the one enthroned on the cherubim, display your glory. 1Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.
2Reveal your power before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, then come to our rescue.2Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up your might and come to save us!
3God, restore us, show your favor and deliver us.3Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved!
4LORD God of the Heavenly Armies, when will your smoldering anger toward your people's prayers cease? 4O LORD God of hosts, how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers?
5You fed them tears as their food, and caused them to drink a full measure of tears.5You have fed them with the bread of tears and given them tears to drink in full measure.
6You have set us at strife against our neighbors and our enemies deride us.6You make us an object of contention for our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7God of the Heavenly Armies, restore us and show your favor, so we may be delivered.7Restore us, O God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved!
8You uprooted a vine from Egypt, and drove out nations to transplant it.8You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it.
9You cleared the ground so that its roots grew and filled the land.9You cleared the ground for it; it took deep root and filled the land.
10Mountains were covered by its shadows, and the mighty cedars by its branches.10The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches.
11Its branches spread out to the Mediterranean Sea and its shoots to the Euphrates River.11It sent out its branches to the sea and its shoots to the River.
12Why did you break down its walls so that those who pass by pluck its fruits? 12Why then have you broken down its walls, so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
13Wild boars of the forest gnaw at it, and creatures of the field feed on it.13The boar from the forest ravages it, and all that move in the field feed on it.
14God of the Heavenly Armies, return! Look down from heaven and see. Show care toward this vine.14Turn again, O God of hosts! Look down from heaven, and see; have regard for this vine,
15The root that your right hand planted, the shoot that you tended for yourself,15the stock that your right hand planted, and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.
16was burned with fire, cut off, and destroyed on account of your rebuke.16They have burned it with fire; they have cut it down; may they perish at the rebuke of your face!
17May you support the man at your right hand; the son of man whom you have raised for yourself.17But let your hand be on the man of your right hand, the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself!
18Then we will not turn away from you. Restore us, so we can call upon your name.18Then we shall not turn back from you; give us life, and we will call upon your name!
19God of hosts, restore to us the light of your favor. Then we'll be delivered.19Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved!
