1: (To the chief Musician. On Shoshannim-Eduth. Of Asaph. A Psalm.) Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that sittest [between] the cherubim, shine forth. 2: Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up thy strength, and come to our deliverance. 3: O God, restore us; and cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved. 4: Jehovah, God of hosts, how long will thine anger smoke against the prayer of thy people? 5: Thou hast fed them with the bread of tears, and given them tears to drink in large measure: 6: Thou hast made us a strife unto our neighbours, and our enemies mock among themselves. 7: Restore us, O God of hosts; and cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved. 8: Thou broughtest a vine out of Egypt; thou didst cast out the nations, and plant it: 9: Thou preparedst space before it, and it took deep root, and filled the land; 10: The mountains were covered with its shadow, and the branches thereof were [like] cedars of God; 11: It sent out its boughs unto the sea, and its shoots unto the river. 12: Why hast thou broken down its fences, so that all who pass by the way do pluck it? 13: The boar out of the forest doth waste it, and the beast of the field doth feed off it. 14: O God of hosts, return, we beseech thee; look down from the heavens, and behold, and visit this vine; 15: Even the stock which thy right hand hath planted, and the young plant thou madest strong for thyself. 16: It is burned with fire, it is cut down; they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. 17: Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou hast made strong for thyself. 18: So will we not go back from thee. Revive us, and we will call upon thy name. 19: Restore us, O Jehovah, God of hosts; cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
