God Implored to Rescue His People from Their Calamities.
For the choir director; set to[a]El Shoshannim; [b]Eduth. A Psalm of Asaph.
80 Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth! 2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power And come to save us! 3 O God, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, [c]and we will be saved.
4 O Lord God of hosts, How long will You [d]be angry with the prayer of Your people? 5 You have fed them with the bread of tears, And You have made them to drink tears in [e]large measure. 6 You make us [f]an object of contention to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves. 7 O God of hosts, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, [g]and we will be saved.
8 You removed a vine from Egypt; You drove out the [h]nations and planted it. 9 You cleared the ground before it, And it took deep root and filled the land. 10 The mountains were covered with its shadow, And [i]the cedars of God with its boughs. 11 It was sending out its branches to the sea And its shoots to the River. 12 Why have You broken down its [j]hedges, So that all who pass that way pick its fruit? 13 A boar from the forest eats it away And whatever moves in the field feeds on it.
14 O God of hosts, turn again now, we beseech You; Look down from heaven and see, and take care of this vine, 15 Even the [k]shoot which Your right hand has planted, And on the [l]son whom You have [m]strengthened for Yourself. 16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance. 17 Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself. 18 Then we shall not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name. 19 O Lord God of hosts, restore us; Cause Your face to shine upon us, [n]and we will be saved.
