Psalm 80
New American Standard Bible 1995International Standard Version
1For the choir director; set to El Shoshannim; Eduth. A Psalm of Asaph. Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!1Shepherd of Israel, listen! The one who leads Joseph like a flock, the one enthroned on the cherubim, display your glory.
2Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power And come to save us!2Reveal your power before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, then come to our rescue.
3O God, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.3God, restore us, show your favor and deliver us.
4O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry with the prayer of Your people?4LORD God of the Heavenly Armies, when will your smoldering anger toward your people's prayers cease?
5You have fed them with the bread of tears, And You have made them to drink tears in large measure.5You fed them tears as their food, and caused them to drink a full measure of tears.
6You make us an object of contention to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves.6You have set us at strife against our neighbors and our enemies deride us.
7O God of hosts, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.7God of the Heavenly Armies, restore us and show your favor, so we may be delivered.
8You removed a vine from Egypt; You drove out the nations and planted it.8You uprooted a vine from Egypt, and drove out nations to transplant it.
9You cleared the ground before it, And it took deep root and filled the land.9You cleared the ground so that its roots grew and filled the land.
10The mountains were covered with its shadow, And the cedars of God with its boughs.10Mountains were covered by its shadows, and the mighty cedars by its branches.
11It was sending out its branches to the sea And its shoots to the River.11Its branches spread out to the Mediterranean Sea and its shoots to the Euphrates River.
12Why have You broken down its hedges, So that all who pass that way pick its fruit?12Why did you break down its walls so that those who pass by pluck its fruits?
13A boar from the forest eats it away And whatever moves in the field feeds on it.13Wild boars of the forest gnaw at it, and creatures of the field feed on it.
14O God of hosts, turn again now, we beseech You; Look down from heaven and see, and take care of this vine,14God of the Heavenly Armies, return! Look down from heaven and see. Show care toward this vine.
15Even the shoot which Your right hand has planted, And on the son whom You have strengthened for Yourself.15The root that your right hand planted, the shoot that you tended for yourself,
16It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.16was burned with fire, cut off, and destroyed on account of your rebuke.
17Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.17May you support the man at your right hand; the son of man whom you have raised for yourself.
18Then we shall not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.18Then we will not turn away from you. Restore us, so we can call upon your name.
19O LORD God of hosts, restore us; Cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.19God of hosts, restore to us the light of your favor. Then we'll be delivered.
