|<< Psalm 80 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Shepherd of Israel, give ear and lead Joseph like a flock! Be revealed sitting upon the cherubim!
2Before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh, show your power and come for our salvation!
3God of hosts, restore us and make your face shine and we will be saved!
4Lord Jehovah, God of hosts, how long are you angry against the prayer of your Servant?
5You fed them bread with tears and you made them drink with tears.
6You have made us a mockery to our neighbors and our enemies have mocked at us.
7God of hosts, restore us and shine your face and we shall be saved!
8You brought out a vine from Egypt, you destroyed Gentiles and you planted it.
9You dug in it and you planted its roots and the land was filled with it.
10And the mountains were covered by its shade and its shoots were upon the cedars of God.
11It sent its tendrils unto the sea and its shoots upon the rivers.
12Why have you broken down its hedge and all those passing by the way have trampled it?
13The boar of the forest consumed it and the wild beasts of the wilderness feed on it.
14God of hosts, return and look from Heaven and see and visit this vine!
15Even the vine that your right hand has planted and The Son of Man that you made strong for yourself!
16He consumed its shoots in a fire and by the reproof of your face they shall be destroyed.
17Let your right hand be upon The Man and upon The Son of Man whom you strengthened for yourself.
18Give us life so that we will not turn from you, and we will call upon your Name.
19Lord Jehovah, God of Hosts, restore us and shine your face and we shall be saved!
