1 To the overseer for the lilies of the testimonies; to Asaph a chanting. O thou feeding Israel, give ear, guiding Joseph as sheep.; thou dwelling in the cherubs, shine forth. 2 Before Epraim and Benjainin add Manasseh raise up thy strength, and come to save for us. 3 O God, turn us back and cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved:
4 O Jehovah, God of armies, how long didst thou smoke against the prayer of thy people? 5 Thou gavest them to eat the bread of tears, and thou wilt give them to drink in tears by measure. 6 Thou wilt set us a strife to our neighbors, and our enemies will deride to themselves. 7 O God of armies, turn us back and cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
8 Thou wilt remove a vine from Egypt: thou wilt cast out the nations and thou wilt plant it 9 Thou didst set in order before it, and thou wilt cause its roots to take root and the earth will be filled. 10 Its Shadow covered the mountains, and its branches the cedars of God. 11 Thou Wilt send forth her boughs even to the sea, and her suckers to the river.
12 Wherefore didst thou break down her walls, and all passing by the way plucked her? 13 The swine from the forest will lay it waste, and the Moving thing of the field will feed upon it 14 O God of armies, turn back now: look from the heavens and see, and review this vine; 15 And the plant which thy right hand planted, and upon the son thou madest strong for thee, 16 Burning it in fire, tutting it down; from the rebuke of thy face they shall perish. 17 Thy hand shall be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man thou madest Strong for thee. 18 And we will not draw back from thee: thou wilt cause us to live, and we will call upon thy name. 19 O Jehovah, God of armies turn us back; cause thy face to shine, and We shall be saved.
