Psalms Chapter 80 (Index)

001  To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of Asaph. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

002  Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.

003  Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

004  O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?

005  Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.

006  Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.

007  Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

008  Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.

009  Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.

010  The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.

011  She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.

012  Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?

013  The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

014  Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;

015  And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.

016  It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.

017  Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.

018  So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.

019  Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
