Psalm 80

Psalm 80

Restore Us, O God
To the choirmaster: according to #Ps. 60, title Lilies. A Testimony. Of #Ps. 50, titleAsaph, a Psalm.
1Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead #Ps. 78:67; 81:5 Joseph like #[Ps. 95:7]; See Ps. 77:20 a flock.
You who are #Ps. 99:1; Ex. 25:22; 1 Sam. 4:4; 2 Sam. 6:2 enthroned upon the cherubim, #See Ps. 50:2shine forth.
2Before #See Num. 2:18-24 Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh,
# See Ps. 35:23 stir up your might
and #[Ps. 118:14, 21]come to save us!
3 # ver. 19; Ps. 60:1; 85:4; Lam. 5:21 Restore us,#80:3 Or Turn us again; also verses 7, 19 O God;
# Num. 6:25; See Ps. 4:6 let your face shine, that we may be saved!
4O #See Ps. 59:5 Lord God of hosts,
# [Ps. 74:10; 79:5] how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers?
5You have fed them with #Ps. 42:3; 102:9; [1 Kgs. 22:27; Isa. 30:20]the bread of tears
and given them tears to drink in full measure.
6 # See Ps. 44:13 You make us an object of contention for our #See Ps. 44:13neighbors,
and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 # [See ver. 3 above] Restore us, O God of hosts;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!
8You brought #Isa. 5:1; 27:2; Jer. 2:21; 12:10; Ezek. 17:6; Matt. 21:33; Mark 12:1; Luke 20:9 a vine out of Egypt;
you #See Ps. 44:2drove out the nations and planted it.
9You #[Josh. 24:12]cleared the ground for it;
it took deep root and filled the land.
10The mountains were covered with its shade,
the mighty cedars with its branches.
11It sent out its branches to #See Ps. 72:8the sea
and its shoots to #See Ps. 72:8the River.#80:11 That is, the Euphrates
12Why then have you #Ps. 89:40; Isa. 5:5broken down its walls,
so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
13 # [Jer. 5:6] The boar from the forest ravages it,
and all that move in the field feed on it.
14Turn again, O God of hosts!
# [Isa. 63:15] Look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine,
15the stock that your right hand planted,
and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.
16They have #Isa. 33:12 burned it with fire; they have #Isa. 33:12 cut it down;
may they perish at #Ps. 76:6; [Ps. 39:11]the rebuke of your face!
17But #Ps. 89:21let your hand be on the man of your right hand,
the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself!
18Then we shall not turn back from you;
# See Ps. 71:20 give us life, and we will call upon your name!
19 # ver. 3, 7 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!
Let your face shine, that we may be saved!
