Psalms 80

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

Psalms 80:1 {To the chaunter, vpon Sosanim, a Psalme of Asaph.} Heare O thou shepeherde of Israel, thou that leadest Iacob lyke a flocke of shepe: shew thy self, thou that sittest vppon the Cherubyns. Psalms 80:2 Before Ephraim, Beniamin, and Manasses: stirre vp thy power, & come help vs. Psalms 80:3 Turne vs agayn, O God, shew the light of thy countenaunce, and we shalbe whole. Psalms 80:4 O Lord God of hostes, howe longe wilt thou be angry ouer the praier of thy people? Psalms 80:5 Thou hast fed them with the bread of teares, yea, thou hast geuen them plenteousnes of teares to drynke. Psalms 80:6 Thou haste made vs a verye stryfe vnto oure neyghbours, and oure enemyes laugh vs to scorne. Psalms 80:7 Turne vs agayne, thou God of hoostes, shewe the light of thy countenaunce, & we shalbe whole.

God's former favours are turned into judgments.

Psalms 80:8 Thou hast broughte a vyneyarde oute of Egypte, thou diddest cast out the Heathen, & planted it. Psalms 80:9 Thou madest rowme for it, and caused it to take rote, so that it fylled the lande. Psalms 80:10 The hylles were couered with þe shadow of it, and so were the stronge Cedre trees wt the bowes therof. Psalms 80:11 She stretched out her braunches vnto the sea, and her bowes vnto the water. Psalms 80:12 Why haste thou then broken doune her hedge, that all they whiche go by, plucke of her grapes? Psalms 80:13 Then wylde bore out of the wood hath roted it vp, and the beastes of the felde haue deuoured it.

He prayeth for deliverance.

Psalms 80:14 Turne the agayne, thou God of hoostes, loke doune from heauen, beholde and vyset this vyneyarde. Psalms 80:15 Maynteyne it, that thy rightehande hath planted, and the sonne whom thou madest so muche of for thy self. Psalms 80:16 For why? it is brent with fyre, and lyeth waste: O let them peryshe at the rebuke of thy wrath. Psalms 80:17 Let thy hande be vpon the man of thy right hande, and vpon the man whome thou madest so much of for thyne owne selfe. Psalms 80:18 And so will not we go back from the: Oh let vs lyue, & we shall call vpon thy name. Psalms 80:19 Turne vs agayne, O Lorde God of hoostes, shewe the light of thy countenaunce, & we shalbe whole.
