Psalm 80

Psalm 80

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.


turned by God so that I don't stray from him
