Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 80

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

Psalms 80:1 {To the Chief Musician. For "the Lilies of Testimony." Asaph's. A Melody.} O Shepherd of Israel, give ear, Thou who leddest forth Joseph like a rock, Thou who art throned on the cherubim, appear! Psalms 80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up thy strength, And come! to our salvation. Psalms 80:3 O God, bring us back, And light up thy face, That we may be saved. Psalms 80:4 O Yahweh, God of hosts! How long hast thou been wroth with the prayer of thy people? Psalms 80:5 Thou hast fed them with the food of tears, And hast caused them to drink the water of weeping in threefold abundance. Psalms 80:6 Thou dost make us an object of contention to our neighbours, And, our foes, find mockery for themselves. Psalms 80:7 O God of hosts, bring us back, And light up thy face, That we may be saved.

God's former favours are turned into judgments.

Psalms 80:8 A vine out of Egypt, thou didst remove, Thou didst cast out nations, and plant it; Psalms 80:9 Thou didst make a clear space before it, So it rooted well its roots, and filled up the land; Psalms 80:10 Covered were the mountains with its shade, And, with its boughs, the mighty cedars. Psalms 80:11 It thrust forth its branches as far as the sea,—And, unto the River, its shoots. Psalms 80:12 Wherefore hast thou broken down its fences, So that all who pass along the way, pluck its fruit? Psalms 80:13 The boar out of the forest, browseth upon it, And, the wild beast of the field, pastureth thereon.

He prayeth for deliverance.

Psalms 80:14 O God of hosts, return, we pray thee,—Look down out of the heavens, and see, And inspect this vine: Psalms 80:15 Yea the stock which thy right hand planted, Even upon the son thou didst secure for thyself. Psalms 80:16 To be burned with fire, it is cut down,—At the rebuke of thy countenance, they will perish. Psalms 80:17 Let thy hand be, Upon the Man of thy right hand, Upon the Son of Man thou didst secure for thyself; Psalms 80:18 So will we not draw back from thee, Thou wilt bring us to life, And, on thy Name, will we call. Psalms 80:19 O Yahweh, God of hosts! bring us back, Light up thy face, That we may be saved.
