2 dBefore Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh
eStir up thy strength,
And †come and save us.
3 fTurn us again, O God,
gAnd cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
4 hO Lord God of hosts,
5 Thou feedest them with kthe bread of tears;
And givest them tears to drink in great lmeasure.
6 Thou makest us a strife unto mour neighbours:
And our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 fTurn us again, O God of hosts,
And cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
8 Thou hast brought na vine out of Egypt:
9 Thou qpreparedst room before it,
And didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
And the boughs thereof were like †the goodly cedars.
11 She sent out her rboughs unto the sea,
12 Why hast thou then ubroken down her hedges,
13 The boar yout of the wood doth waste it,
And zthe wild beast of the field doth devour it.
14 aReturn, we beseech thee, O God of hosts:
And visit this vine;
They perish gat the rebuke of thy countenance.
kQuicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
19 lTurn us again, O Lord God of hosts,
Cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
