Psalm 80-85 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
80 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; Thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.
2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Thy strength, and come and save us.
3 Turn us again, O God, and cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
4 O Lord God of hosts, how long wilt Thou be angry against the prayer of Thy people?
5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; Thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
9 Thou preparedst room for it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
12 Why hast Thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they that pass by the way do pluck her?
13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
14 Return, we beseech Thee, O God of hosts; look down from heaven, and behold and visit this vine,
15 and the vineyard which Thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that Thou madest strong for Thyself.
16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down; they perish at the rebuke of Thy countenance.
17 Let Thy hand be upon the man of Thy right hand, upon the son of man whom Thou madest strong for Thyself.
18 So will we not go back from Thee; quicken us, and we will call upon Thy name.
19 Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts; cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved!
81 Sing aloud unto God our strength; make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3 Blow the trumpet in the new moon, at the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.
5 This He ordained in Joseph as a testimony, when He went out through the land of Egypt, where I heard a language that I understood not:
6 “I removed his shoulder from the burden; his hands were delivered from the pots.
7 Thou called in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder. I tested thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah
8 Hear, O My people, and I will testify unto thee, O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto Me!
9 There shall be no strange god among thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.
10 I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt. Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
11 “But My people would not hearken to My voice, and Israel would have none of Me.
12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust, and they walked in their own counsels.
13 Oh that My people had hearkened unto Me, and Israel had walked in My ways!
14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned My and against their adversaries.”
15 The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto Him, but their time should have endured for ever.
16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat, and, “With honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.”
82 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; He judgeth among the gods.
2 How long will ye judge unjustly and accept persons of the wicked? Selah
3 Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy; rescue them out of the hand of the wicked.
5 They know not, neither will they understand. They walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6 I have said, “Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High.”
7 But ye shall die like men and fall like one of the princes.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth, for Thou shalt inherit all nations.
83 Keep Thou not silence, O God; hold not Thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2 For lo, Thine enemies make a tumult, and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against Thy people, and consulted against Thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.”
5 For they have consulted together with one accord; they are confederate against Thee:
6 the tabernacles of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagarites,
7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre.
8 Assyria also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot. Selah
9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites, as to Sisera, as to Jabin at the Brook of Kishon,
10 who perished at Endor; they became as dung for the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, yea, all their princes as Zebah and as Zalmunna,
12 who said, “Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.”
13 O my God, make them like a wheel, as the stubble before the wind.
14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire,
15 so persecute them with Thy tempest, and make them afraid with Thy storm.
16 Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek Thy name, O Lord.
17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame and perish,
18 that men may know that Thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the Most High over all the earth.
84 How amiable are Thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself where she may lay her young” even Thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are they that dwell in Thy house; they will be ever praising Thee. Selah
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee, in whose heart are Thy ways,
6 who passing through the Valley of Baca makes it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
7 They go from strength to strength; every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah
9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Thine anointed.
10 For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in Thee!
85 Lord, Thou hast been favorable unto Thy land; Thou hast released the captives of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people; Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah
3 Thou hast taken away all Thy wrath; Thou hast turned Thyself from the fierceness of Thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause Thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt Thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt Thou draw out Thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt Thou not revive us again, that Thy people may rejoice in Thee?
7 Show us Thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us Thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak peace unto His people and to His saints; but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good, and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before Him, and shall set us in the way of His steps.
