> Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock, You who sit above the cherubim, shine forth.
80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up your might! Come to save us!
80:3 Turn us again, God. Cause your face to shine, And we will be saved.
80:4 Yahweh God of hosts, How long will you be angry against the prayer of your people?
80:5 You have fed them with the bread of tears, And given them tears to drink in large measure.
80:6 You make us a source of contention to our neighbors. Our enemies laugh among themselves.
80:7 Turn us again, God of hosts. Cause your face to shine, And we will be saved.
80:8 You brought a vine out of Egypt. You drove out the nations, and planted it.
80:9 You cleared the ground for it. It took deep root, and filled the land.
80:10 The mountains were covered with its shadow. Its boughs were like God's cedars.
80:11 It sent out its branches to the sea, Its shoots to the River.
80:12 Why have you broken down its walls, So that all those who pass by the way pluck it?
80:13 The boar out of the wood ravages it. The wild animals of the field feed on it.
80:14 Turn again, we beg you, God of hosts. Look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vine,
80:15 The stock which your right hand planted, The branch that you made strong for yourself.
80:16 It's burned with fire. It's cut down. They perish at your rebuke.
80:17 Let your hand be on the man of your right hand, On the son of man whom you made strong for yourself.
80:18 So we will not turn away from you. Revive us, and we will call on your name.
80:19 Turn us again, Yahweh God of hosts. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.
