Tehillim (Psa) 80
CJB
80
1For the leader. Set to “Lilies.” A testimony. A psalm of Asaf:
2Shepherd of Isra’el, listen!
You who lead Yosef like a flock,
you whose throne is on the k’ruvim,
shine out!
3Before Efrayim, Binyamin and M’nasheh,
rouse your power; and come to save us.
4God, restore us!
Make your face shine, and we will be saved.
5Adonai, God of armies, how long
will you be angry with your people’s prayers?
6You have fed them tears as their bread
and made them drink tears in abundance.
7You make our neighbors fight over us,
and our enemies mock us.
8God of armies, restore us!
Make your face shine, and we will be saved.
9You brought a vine out of Egypt,
you expelled the nations and planted it,
10you cleared a space for it;
then it took root firmly and filled the land.
11The mountains were covered with its shade,
the mighty cedars with its branches;
12It put out branches as far as the sea
and shoots to the [Euphrates] River.
13Why did you break down [the vineyard’s] wall,
so that all passing by can pluck [its fruit]?
14The boar from the forest tears it apart;
wild creatures from the fields feed on it.
15God of armies, please come back!
Look from heaven, see, and tend this vine!
16Protect what your right hand planted,
the son you made strong for yourself.
17It is burned by fire, it is cut down;
they perish at your frown of rebuke.
18Help the man at your right hand,
the son of man you made strong for yourself.
19Then we won’t turn away from you —
if you revive us, we will call on your name.
20Adonai, God of armies, restore us!
Make your face shine, and we will be saved.
