Psalm 80


"Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.
 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.
 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
 Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish 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 strong for thyself.
 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved."

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
