Psalms


080:001 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.
080:002 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.
080:003 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
080:004 O Lord God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
080:005 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
080:006 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
080:007 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
080:008 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
080:009 Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
080:010 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
080:011 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
080:012 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
080:013 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
080:014 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
080:015 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
080:016 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
080:017 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
080:018 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
080:019 Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
