Psalm 80

English Standard Version

To the choirmaster: according to Lilies. A Testimony. Of Asaph, a Psalm. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth. (Ex 25:22; 1Sa 4:4; 2Sa 6:2; Ps 50:1; Ps 50:2; Ps 60:1; Ps 77:20; Ps 78:67; Ps 81:5; Ps 95:7; Ps 99:1) Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up your might and come to save us! (Nu 2:18; Ps 35:23; Ps 118:14; Ps 118:21) Restore us,[1] O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved! (Nu 6:25; Ps 4:6; Ps 60:1; Ps 80:19; Ps 85:4; La 5:21) O Lord God of hosts, how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers? (Ps 59:5; Ps 74:10; Ps 79:5) You have fed them with the bread of tears and given them tears to drink in full measure. (1Ki 22:27; Ps 42:3; Ps 102:9; Isa 30:20) You make us an object of contention for our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among themselves. (Ps 44:13) Restore us, O God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved! (Ps 80:3) You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it. (Ps 44:2; Isa 5:1; Isa 27:2; Jer 2:21; Jer 12:10; Eze 17:6; Mt 21:33; Mr 12:1; Lu 20:9) You cleared the ground for it; it took deep root and filled the land. (Jos 24:12) 10 The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches. 11 It sent out its branches to the sea and its shoots to the River.[2] (Ps 72:8) 12 Why then have you broken down its walls, so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit? (Ps 89:40; Isa 5:5) 13 The boar from the forest ravages it, and all that move in the field feed on it. (Jer 5:6) 14 Turn again, O God of hosts! Look down from heaven, and see; have regard for this vine, (Isa 63:15) 15 the stock that your right hand planted, and for the son whom you made strong for yourself. 16 They have burned it with fire; they have cut it down; may they perish at the rebuke of your face! (Ps 39:11; Ps 76:6; Isa 33:12) 17 But let your hand be on the man of your right hand, the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself! (Ps 89:21) 18 Then we shall not turn back from you; give us life, and we will call upon your name! (Ps 71:20) 19 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved! (Ps 80:3; Ps 80:7)

Psalm 80

New International Version

Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might; come and save us. Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. How long, Lord God Almighty, will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people? You have fed them with the bread of tears; you have made them drink tears by the bowlful. You have made us an object of derision[1] to our neighbors, and our enemies mock us. Restore us, God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. You transplanted a vine from Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it. You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land. 10 The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches. 11 Its branches reached as far as the Sea,[2] its shoots as far as the River.[3] 12 Why have you broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its grapes? 13 Boars from the forest ravage it, and insects from the fields feed on it. 14 Return to us, God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine, 15 the root your right hand has planted, the son[4] you have raised up for yourself. 16 Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire; at your rebuke your people perish. 17 Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised up for yourself. 18 Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name. 19 Restore us, Lord God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

Psalm 80

King James Version

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. Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us. Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved. O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people? Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure. Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves. Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved. Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. 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. 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. 19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

Psalm 80

New Int. Readers Version

Shepherd of Israel, hear us. You lead the people of Joseph like a flock. You sit on your throne between the cherubim. Show your glory to the people of Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Call your strength into action. Come and save us. God, make us new again. Let your face smile on us with favor. Then we will be saved. Lord God who rules over all, how long will your anger burn against the prayers of your people? You have given us tears as our food. You have made us drink tears by the bowlful. You have let our neighbors fight against us. Our enemies laugh at us. God who rules over all, make us new again. Let your face smile on us with favor. Then we will be saved. You brought Israel out of Egypt. Israel was like a vine. After you drove the nations out of Canaan, you planted the vine in their land. You prepared the ground for it. It took root and spread out over the whole land. 10 The mountains were covered with its shade. The shade of its branches covered the mighty cedar trees. 11 Your vine sent its branches out all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. They reached as far as the Euphrates River. 12 Why have you broken down the walls around your vine? Now all who pass by it can pick its grapes. 13 Wild pigs from the forest destroy it. The creatures of the field feed on it. 14 God who rules over all, return to us! Look down from heaven and see us! Watch over your vine. 15 Guard the root you have planted with your powerful right hand. Take care of the branch you have raised up for yourself. 16 Your vine has been cut down. Fire has burned it up. You have been angry with us, and we are dying. 17 May you honor the people at your right hand. May you honor the nation you have raised up for yourself. 18 Then we won't turn away from you. Give us new life. We will worship you. 19 Lord God who rules over all, make us new again. Let your face smile on us with favor. Then we will be saved.
