To the chief Musician18 upon Shoshannimeduth, 5715 7802 A Psalm of Asaph.
Give ear,54 O Shepherd6 of Israel, thou that leadest6 Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest6 [between] the cherubims, shine forth.54
Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up33 thy strength, and come3 [and] save us.
Turn us again,54 O God, and cause thy face to shine;54 and we shall be saved.11
O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry1 against the prayer of thy people?
Thou feedest52 them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink55 in great measure.
Thou makest4 us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies6 laugh4 among themselves.
Turn us again,54 O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine;54 and we shall be saved.11
Thou hast brought55 a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out17 the heathen, and planted4 it.
Thou preparedst14 [room] before it, and didst cause it to take deep root,55 and it filled17 the land.
The hills were covered27 with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof [were like] the goodly cedars.
She sent out17 her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
Why hast thou [then] broken down1 her hedges, so that all they which pass by6 the way do pluck1 her?
The boar out of the wood doth waste17 it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour4 it.
Return,3 we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down54 from heaven, and behold,3 and visit3 this vine;
And the vineyard 3661 3 which thy right hand hath planted,1 and the branch [that] thou madest strong14 for thyself.
[It is] burned7 with fire, [it is] cut down:7 they perish4 at the rebuke of thy countenance.
Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man [whom] thou madest strong14 for thyself.
So will not we go back4 from thee: quicken17 us, and we will call4 upon thy name.
Turn us again,54 O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine;54 and we shall be saved.11
