Psalms 80

The psalmist in his prayer complaineth of the miseries of the Church.

Psalms 80:1 {For the Chief Musician; set to Shoshannim Eduth. A Psalm of Asaph.} Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; Thou that sittest [above] the cherubim, shine forth. Psalms 80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up thy might, And come to save us. Psalms 80:3 Turn us again, O God; And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved. Psalms 80:4 O Jehovah God of hosts, How long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people? Psalms 80:5 Thou hast fed them with the bread of tears, And given them tears to drink in large measure. Psalms 80:6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbors; And our enemies laugh among themselves. Psalms 80:7 Turn us again, O God of hosts; And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.

God's former favours are turned into judgments.

Psalms 80:8 Thou broughtest a vine out of Egypt: Thou didst drive out the nations, and plantedst it. Psalms 80:9 Thou preparedst [room] before it, And it took deep root, and filled the land. Psalms 80:10 The mountains were covered with the shadow of it, And the boughs thereof were [like] cedars of God. Psalms 80:11 It sent out its branches unto the sea, And its shoots unto the River. Psalms 80:12 Why hast thou broken down its walls, So that all they that pass by the way do pluck it? Psalms 80:13 The boar out of the wood doth ravage it, And the wild beasts of the field feed on it.

He prayeth for deliverance.

Psalms 80:14 Turn again, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: Look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine, Psalms 80:15 And the stock which thy right hand planted, And the branch that thou madest strong for thyself. Psalms 80:16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: They perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. Psalms 80:17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, Upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself. Psalms 80:18 So shall we not go back from thee: Quicken thou us, and we will call upon thy name. Psalms 80:19 Turn us again, O Jehovah God of hosts; Cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
