1: To the Overseer. -- 'On the Lilies.' A testimony of Asaph. -- A Psalm. Shepherd of Israel, give ear, Leading Joseph as a flock, Inhabiting the cherubs -- shine forth, 2: Before Ephraim, and Benjamin, and Manasseh, Wake up Thy might, and come for our salvation. 3: O God, cause us to turn back, And cause Thy face to shine, and we are saved. 4: Jehovah, God of Hosts, till when? Thou hast burned against the prayer of Thy people. 5: Thou hast caused them to eat bread of tears, And causest them to drink With tears a third time. 6: Thou makest us a strife to our neighbors, And our enemies mock at it. 7: God of Hosts, turn us back, And cause Thy face to shine, and we are saved. 8: A vine out of Egypt Thou dost bring, Thou dost cast out nations, and plantest it. 9: Thou hast looked before it, and dost root it, And it filleth the land, 10: Covered have been hills [with] its shadow, And its boughs [are] cedars of God. 11: It sendeth forth its branches unto the sea, And unto the river its sucklings. 12: Why hast Thou broken down its hedges, And all passing by the way have plucked it? 13: A boar out of the forest doth waste it, And a wild beast of the fields consumeth it. 14: God of Hosts, turn back, we beseech Thee, Look from heaven, and see, and inspect this vine, 15: And the root that Thy right hand planted, And the branch Thou madest strong for Thee, 16: Burnt with fire -- cut down, From the rebuke of Thy face they perish. 17: Let Thy hand be on the man of Thy right hand, On the son of man Thou hast strengthened for Thyself. 18: And we do not go back from Thee, Thou dost revive us, and in Thy name we call. 19: O Jehovah, God of Hosts, turn us back, Cause Thy face to shine, and we are saved!
