PS 79:1  Unto the end, for them that shall he changed, a testimony for Asaph, a psalm.

PS 79:2  Give ear, O thou that rulest Israel: thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep. Thou that sittest upon the cherubims, shine forth

PS 79:3  before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasses. Stir up thy might, and come to save us.

PS 79:4  Convert us, O God: and shew us thy face, and we shall be saved.

PS 79:5  O Lord God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy servant?

PS 79:6  How long wilt thou feed us with the bread of tears: and give us for our drink tears in measure?

PS 79:7  Thou hast made us to be a contradiction to our neighbours: and our enemies have scoffed at us.

PS 79:8  O God of hosts, convert us: and shew thy face, and we shall be saved.

PS 79:9  Thou hast brought a vineyard out of Egypt: thou hast cast cut the Gentiles and planted it.

PS 79:10  Thou wast the guide of its journey in its sight: thou plantedst the roots thereof, and it filled the land.

PS 79:11  The shadow of it covered the hills: and the branches thereof the cedars of God.

PS 79:12  It stretched forth its branches unto the sea, and its boughs unto the river.

PS 79:13  Why hast thou broken down the hedge thereof, so that all they who pass by the way do pluck it?

PS 79:14  The boar out of the wood hath laid it waste: and a singular wild beast hath devoured it.

PS 79:15  Turn again, O God of hosts, look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vineyard:

PS 79:16  And perfect the same which thy right hand hath planted: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself.

PS 79:17  Things set on fire and dug down shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.

PS 79:18  Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself.

PS 79:19  And we depart not from thee, thou shalt quicken us: and we will call upon thy name.

PS 79:20  O Lord God of hosts, convert us: and shew thy face, and we shall be saved.
