For the choir director; set to El Shoshannim; Eduth. A Psalm of Asaph. Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!
The LORD loves the gates of Zion More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.
"I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, all the offspring of Ephraim.
