Psalm 80
New American Standard Bible 1995New Living Translation
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!1Please listen, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph’s descendants like a flock. O God, enthroned above the cherubim, display your radiant glory
2Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power And come to save us!2to Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh. Show us your mighty power. Come to rescue us!
3O God, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.3Turn us again to yourself, O God. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.
4O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry with the prayer of Your people?4O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies, how long will you be angry with our prayers?
5You have fed them with the bread of tears, And You have made them to drink tears in large measure.5You have fed us with sorrow and made us drink tears by the bucketful.
6You make us an object of contention to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves.6You have made us the scorn of neighboring nations. Our enemies treat us as a joke.
7O God of hosts, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.7Turn us again to yourself, O God of Heaven’s Armies. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.
8You removed a vine from Egypt; You drove out the nations and planted it.8You brought us from Egypt like a grapevine; you drove away the pagan nations and transplanted us into your land.
9You cleared the ground before it, And it took deep root and filled the land.9You cleared the ground for us, and we took root and filled the land.
10The mountains were covered with its shadow, And the cedars of God with its boughs.10Our shade covered the mountains; our branches covered the mighty cedars.
11It was sending out its branches to the sea And its shoots to the River.11We spread our branches west to the Mediterranean Sea; our shoots spread east to the Euphrates River.
12Why have You broken down its hedges, So that all who pass that way pick its fruit?12But now, why have you broken down our walls so that all who pass by may steal our fruit?
13A boar from the forest eats it away And whatever moves in the field feeds on it.13The wild boar from the forest devours it, and the wild animals 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,14Come back, we beg you, O God of Heaven’s Armies. Look down from heaven and see our plight. Take care of this grapevine
15Even the shoot which Your right hand has planted, And on the son whom You have strengthened for Yourself.15that you yourself have planted, this son you have raised for yourself.
16It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.16For we are chopped up and burned by our enemies. May they perish at the sight of your frown.
17Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.17Strengthen the man you love, the son of your choice.
18Then we shall not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.18Then we will never abandon you again. Revive us so we can call on your name once more.
19O LORD God of hosts, restore us; Cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.19Turn us again to yourself, O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.
