Psalm 80:7–19

7Restore us, O | God of hosts;*

         let your face shine, that we | may be saved!

8You brought a vine out of | Egypt;*

         you drove out the nations and | planted it.

9You cleared the | ground for it;*

         it took deep root and | filled the land.

10The mountains were covered | with its shade,*

         the mighty cedars with its | branches.

11It sent out its branches | to the sea*

         and its shoots to the | River.

12Why then have you broken | down its walls,*

         so that all who pass along the way | pluck its fruit?

13The boar from the forest rav- | ages it,*

         and all that move in the field | feed on it.

14Turn again, O | God of hosts!*

         Look down from | heaven,

and see; have regard for this vine,

15the stock that your right hand | planted,*

         and for the son whom you made strong | for yourself.

16They have burned it with fire; they have | cut it down;*

         may they perish at the rebuke | of your face!

17But let your hand be on the man of your | right hand,*

         the son of man whom you have made strong | for yourself!

18Then we shall not turn | back from you;*

         give us life, and we will call up- | on your name!

19Restore us, O Lord | God of hosts!*

         Let your face shine, that we | may be saved!
