Psalms 80

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

Psalms 80:1 {To the chiefe musition, vpon Sosannim Eduth, a psalme of Asaph.} Heare O thou shephearde of Israel, thou that leadest Ioseph lyke a sheepe: and thou that sittest vpon the Cherubims, shew thy gratious presence. Psalms 80:2 Before Ephraim, Beniamin, and Manasses: stirre vp thy strength, and come for to saue vs. Psalms 80:3 Turne vs agayne O Lorde: shewe the light of thy countenaunce, and we shalbe saued. Psalms 80:4 O God, Lorde of hoastes: howe long wylt thou be angry at the prayer of thy people? Psalms 80:5 Thou feedest them with the bread of teares: and geuest them plenteously teares to drinke. Psalms 80:6 Thou hast made vs a strife vnto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh vs to scorne. Psalms 80:7 Turne vs agayne thou Lorde of hoastes: shewe the light of thy countenaunce, and we shalbe saued.

God's former favours are turned into judgments.

Psalms 80:8 Thou dydst translate a vine out of Egypt: thou didst cast out the Heathen, and planted it. Psalms 80:9 Thou madst roome before it: thou causedst it to take roote, and it hath filled the lande. Psalms 80:10 The hilles were couered with her shadowe: and goodly high Cedar trees with her bowes. Psalms 80:11 She stretched out her braunches vnto the sea: and her bowes vnto the riuer. Psalms 80:12 Why hast thou then broken downe her hedge: that all they whiche go by plucke of her grapes? Psalms 80:13 The wylde bore out of the wood rooteth it vp: and the wylde beast of the fielde deuoureth it.

He prayeth for deliverance.

Psalms 80:14 Turne thee agayne thou God of hoastes I pray thee: loke downe from heauen, beholde and visite this vine Psalms 80:15 and vineyarde that thy ryght hande hath planted, and the young braunche which thou hast fortified for thy selfe. Psalms 80:16 It is brent with fire and cut downe: they shall perishe at the rebuke of thy countenaunce. Psalms 80:17 Let thy hande be vpon the man of thy right hande: and vpon the sonne of man whom thou hast fortified for thyne owne selfe. Psalms 80:18 And so we wyll not go backe from thee: thou shalt reuiue vs, and we wyll call vpon thy name. Psalms 80:19 Turne vs agayne O God, Lorde of hoastes: shewe the light of thy countenaunce, and we shalbe saued.
