The Book of Psalms
1 – Unto the end, for them that shall he changed, a testimony for Asaph, a psalm.
2 – Give ear, O thou that rulest Israel: thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep. Thou that sittest upon the cherubims, shine forth
3 – before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasses. Stir up thy might, and come to save us.
4 – Convert us, O God: and shew us thy face, and we shall be saved.
5 – O Lord God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy servant?
6 – How long wilt thou feed us with the bread of tears: and give us for our drink tears in measure?
7 – Thou hast made us to be a contradiction to our neighbours: and our enemies have scoffed at us.
8 – O God of hosts, convert us: and shew thy face, and we shall be saved.
9 – Thou hast brought a vineyard out of Egypt: thou hast cast cut the Gentiles and planted it.
10 – Thou wast the guide of its journey in its sight: thou plantedst the roots thereof, and it filled the land.
11 – The shadow of it covered the hills: and the branches thereof the cedars of God.
12 – It stretched forth its branches unto the sea, and its boughs unto the river.
13 – Why hast thou broken down the hedge thereof, so that all they who pass by the way do pluck it?
14 – The boar out of the wood hath laid it waste: and a singular wild beast hath devoured it.
15 – Turn again, O God of hosts, look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vineyard:
16 – And perfect the same which thy right hand hath planted: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself.
17 – Things set on fire and dug down shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
18 – Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself.
19 – And we depart not from thee, thou shalt quicken us: and we will call upon thy name.
20 – O Lord God of hosts, convert us: and shew thy face, and we shall be saved.
