Psalm 80

English Standard Version

1 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)2 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)3 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)4 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)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)6 You make us an object of contention for our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among themselves. (Ps 44:13)7 Restore us, O God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved! (Ps 80:3)8 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)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)
