Psalm 79 : 9 and 12, 13-14, 15-16, 19-20
You had a vine You brought from Egypt. You drove nations out, to plant it in their land. Its branches reached out to the sea and its shoots to the River.
Why, then, have You broken down its walls, so that all who pass by pluck its fruits? The beasts of the forest ravage it and all creatures of the field feed on it.
Turn again, o YHVH of hosts, look down from heaven and see; care for this vine, and protect the stock Your hand has planted.
Then, we will never turn away from You; give us life, and we will call on Your Name. Restore us, o YHVH, God of hosts; make Your face shine on us, that we may be saved.
