Psalms 80

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

Psalms 80:1 {To him that excelleth on Shoshannim Eduth. A Psalme committed to Asaph.} Heare, O thou Shepheard of Israel, thou that leadest Ioseph like sheepe: shewe thy brightnes, thou that sittest betweene the Cherubims. Psalms 80:2 Before Ephraim and Beniamin and Manasseh stirre vp thy strength, and come to helpe vs. Psalms 80:3 Turne vs againe, O God, and cause thy face to shine that we may be saued. Psalms 80:4 O Lord God of hostes, how long wilt thou be angrie against the prayer of thy people? Psalms 80:5 Thou hast fedde them with the bread of teares, and giuen them teares to drinke with great measure. Psalms 80:6 Thou hast made vs a strife vnto our neighbours, and our enemies laugh at vs among themselues. Psalms 80:7 Turne vs againe, O God of hostes: cause thy face to shine, and we shalbe saued.

God's former favours are turned into judgments.

Psalms 80:8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. Psalms 80:9 Thou madest roume for it, and didest cause it to take roote, and it filled the land. Psalms 80:10 The mountaines were couered with the shadowe of it, and the boughes thereof were like the goodly cedars. Psalms 80:11 Shee stretched out her branches vnto the Sea, and her boughes vnto the Riuer. Psalms 80:12 Why hast thou then broken downe her hedges, so that all they, which passe by the way, haue plucked her? Psalms 80:13 The wilde bore out of the wood hath destroyed it, and the wilde beastes of the fielde haue eaten it vp.

He prayeth for deliverance.

Psalms 80:14 Returne we beseech thee, O God of hostes: looke downe from heauen and beholde and visite this vine, Psalms 80:15 And the vineyard, that thy right hand hath planted, and the young vine, which thou madest strong for thy selfe. Psalms 80:16 It is burnt with fire and cut downe: and they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. Psalms 80:17 Let thine hande be vpon the man of thy right hande, and vpon the sonne of man, whome thou madest strong for thine owne selfe. Psalms 80:18 So will not we goe backe from thee: reuiue thou vs, and we shall call vpon thy Name. Psalms 80:19 Turne vs againe, O Lorde God of hostes: cause thy face to shine and we shalbe saued.
