Bible: Psalm 80:8-15

80:8 You uprooted a vine 1  from Egypt;

you drove out nations and transplanted it.

80:9 You cleared the ground for it; 2 

it took root, 3 

and filled the land.

80:10 The mountains were covered by its shadow,

the highest cedars 4  by its branches.

80:11 Its branches reached the Mediterranean Sea, 5 

and its shoots the Euphrates River. 6 

80:12 Why did you break down its walls, 7 

so that all who pass by pluck its fruit? 8 

80:13 The wild boars of the forest ruin it; 9 

the insects 10  of the field feed on it.

80:14 O God, invincible warrior, 11  come back!

Look down from heaven and take notice!

Take care of this vine,

80:15 the root 12  your right hand planted,

the shoot you made to grow! 13
