Psalm 80
International Standard VersionKing James Bible
1Shepherd of Israel, listen! The one who leads Joseph like a flock, the one enthroned on the cherubim, display your glory. 1To the chief Musician upon ShoshannimEduth, A Psalm of Asaph. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.
2Reveal your power before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, then come to our rescue.2Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.
3God, restore us, show your favor and deliver us.3Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall 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 wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
5You fed them tears as their food, and caused them to drink a full measure of tears.5Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
6You have set us at strife against our neighbors and our enemies deride us.6Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7God of the Heavenly Armies, restore us and show your favor, so we may be delivered.7Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
8You uprooted a vine from Egypt, and drove out nations to transplant it.8Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
9You cleared the ground so that its roots grew and filled the land.9Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
10Mountains were covered by its shadows, and the mighty cedars by its branches.10The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
11Its branches spread out to the Mediterranean Sea and its shoots to the Euphrates River.11She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
12Why did you break down its walls so that those who pass by pluck its fruits? 12Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
13Wild boars of the forest gnaw at it, and creatures of the field feed on it.13The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
14God of the Heavenly Armies, return! Look down from heaven and see. Show care toward this vine.14Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
15The root that your right hand planted, the shoot that you tended for yourself,15And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
16was burned with fire, cut off, and destroyed on account of your rebuke.16It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
17May you support the man at your right hand; the son of man whom you have raised for yourself.17Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
18Then we will not turn away from you. Restore us, so we can call upon your name.18So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
19God of hosts, restore to us the light of your favor. Then we'll be delivered.19Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
