Psa 80:1 Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock, you who sit above the cherubim, shine forth.
Psa 80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up your might! Come to save us!
Psa 80:3 Turn us again, God. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.
Psa 80:4 Yahweh God of Armies, How long will you be angry against the prayer of your people?
Psa 80:5 You have fed them with the bread of tears, and given them tears to drink in large measure.
Psa 80:6 You make us a source of contention to our neighbors. Our enemies laugh among themselves.
Psa 80:7 Turn us again, God of Armies. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.
Psa 80:8 You brought a vine out of Egypt. You drove out the nations, and planted it.
Psa 80:9 You cleared the ground for it. It took deep root, and filled the land.
Psa 80:10 The mountains were covered with its shadow. Its boughs were like God's cedars.
Psa 80:11 It sent out its branches to the sea, Its shoots to the River.
Psa 80:12 Why have you broken down its walls, so that all those who pass by the way pluck it?
Psa 80:13 The boar out of the wood ravages it. The wild animals of the field feed on it.
Psa 80:14 Turn again, we beg you, God of Armies. Look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vine,
Psa 80:15 the stock which your right hand planted, the branch that you made strong for yourself.
Psa 80:16 It's burned with fire. It's cut down. They perish at your rebuke.
Psa 80:17 Let your hand be on the man of your right hand, on the son of man whom you made strong for yourself.
Psa 80:18 So we will not turn away from you. Revive us, and we will call on your name.
Psa 80:19 Turn us again, Yahweh God of Armies. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.
Psa 81:1 Sing aloud to God, our strength! Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob!
Psa 81:2 Raise a song, and bring here the tambourine, the pleasant lyre with the harp.
Psa 81:3 Blow the trumpet at the New Moon, at the full moon, on our feast day.
Psa 81:4 For it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
Psa 81:5 He appointed it in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out over the land of Egypt, I heard a language that I didn't know.
Psa 81:6 "I removed his shoulder from the burden. His hands were freed from the basket.
Psa 81:7 You called in trouble, and I delivered you. I answered you in the secret place of thunder. I tested you at the waters of Meribah." Selah.
Psa 81:8 "Hear, my people, and I will testify to you, Israel, if you would listen to me!
Psa 81:9 There shall be no strange god in you, neither shall you worship any foreign god.
Psa 81:10 I am Yahweh, your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
Psa 81:11 But my people didn't listen to my voice. Israel desired none of me.
Psa 81:12 So I let them go after the stubbornness of their hearts, that they might walk in their own counsels.
Psa 81:13 Oh that my people would listen to me, that Israel would walk in my ways!
Psa 81:14 I would soon subdue their enemies, and turn my hand against their adversaries.
Psa 81:15 The haters of Yahweh would cringe before him, and their punishment would last forever.
Psa 81:16 But he would have also fed them with the finest of the wheat. I will satisfy you with honey out of the rock."
Psa 82:1 God presides in the great assembly. He judges among the gods.
Psa 82:2 "How long will you judge unjustly, and show partiality to the wicked?" Selah.
Psa 82:3 "Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless. Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
Psa 82:4 Rescue the weak and needy. Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked."
Psa 82:5 They don't know, neither do they understand. They walk back and forth in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
Psa 82:6 I said, "You are gods, all of you are sons of the Most High.
Psa 82:7 Nevertheless you shall die like men, and fall like one of the rulers."
Psa 82:8 Arise, God, judge the earth, for you inherit all of the nations.
