1Give ear, O Shepherd of Yisra’ĕl, Who lead Yosĕph like a flock; Who dwell between the keruḇim, shine forth!
2Before Ephrayim, Binyamin, and Menashsheh, Stir up Your might, And come and save us!
3Cause us to turn back, O Elohim, And cause Your face to shine, That we might be saved!
4O יהוה Elohim of hosts, How long shall You be wroth Against the prayer of Your people?
5You have caused them to eat the bread of tears, And have caused them to drink With tears, a third time.
6You have made us a strife to our neighbours, And our enemies laugh among themselves.
7Turn us back, O Elohim of hosts, And cause Your face to shine, That we might be saved!
8You brought a vine out of Mitsrayim; You drove out the nations, and planted it.
9You cleared a place for it, And caused it to take deep root, And it filled the land.
10Hills were covered with its shadow, And the mighty cedars with its twigs.
11She spread her branches to the Sea, And her shoots to the River.
12Why have You broken down her hedges, So that every passer-by plucked her fruit?
13The boar out of the forest ravages it, And the wild beast of the field devours it.
14Return, we beg You, O Elohim of hosts; Look down from heaven, and see, And visit this vine,
15And the stock which Your right hand has planted, And the Son whom You made strong for Yourself.
16It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Your face.
17Let Your hand be upon the One at Your right hand, Upon the Son of Aḏam whom You made strong for Yourself,
18And we shall not backslide from You. Revive us, and let us call upon Your Name.
19Turn us back, O יהוה Elohim of hosts, And cause Your face to shine, That we might be saved!
