Psalm 80

Save us with your shining face
80:1-19
To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of Asaph.

1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

Oh God, who lives between the cherubim, start shining.

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

Stir up your strength and come save us.

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

Let your face shine and we'll be saved. [1]

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.

How long are you going to be mad at us?

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

Our neighbors are laughing at us.

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 before 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 which 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.

Let your face shine and we'll be saved.

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

Put your right hand on the man at your right hand,

and upon the son of man.

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

Let your face shine and we'll be saved.
