Psalm 80
Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead Joseph like a flock! *
You who sit enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth;
Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, *
awaken your strength and come to save us!
Restore us, O God; *
let your face shine upon us, that we may be saved!
O Lord God of hosts, *
how long will you be angry with the prayers of your people?
You have fed them with the bread of tears *
and given them tears to drink by the bowlful.
You have made us an object of contention to our neighbors, *
our enemies mock us among themselves.
Restore us, O God of hosts; *
let your face shine upon us, that we may be saved!
You brought a vine out of Egypt; *
you drove out the nations and planted it.
You cleared the ground for it; *
and it took deep root and filled the land.
The mountains were covered with its shade, *
the mighty cedars with its branches.
It sent out its branches to the sea *
and its shoots as far as the River.
Why then have you broken down its walls, *
so that all who pass that way pluck its fruit?
The boar from the forest ravages it, *
and all that moves in the fields feed upon it.
Turn to us, O God of hosts! *
Look down from heaven, and see;
Show care for this vine,
the root that your right hand has planted, *
the branch you made strong for yourself.
It is burned with fire; it is cut down; *
they perish at the rebuke of your face!
But let your hand be on the man of your right hand, *
on the son of man you have made strong for yourself!
Then we shall not turn away from you; *
give us life, and we will call on your name!
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts! *
Let your face shine upon us, that we may be saved!
