DIVISION. The Psalm divides itself naturally at the refrain which occurs three times: “Turn us again, O God, “etc. Ps 80:1-3 is an opening address to the Lord God of Israel; from Ps 80:4-7 is a lamentation over the national woe, and from Ps 80:8-19 the same complaint is repeated, the nation being represented in a beautiful allegory as a vine. It is a mournful Psalm, and its lilies are lilies of the valley.
Verse 19. Turn us again, O Lord God of Hosts. Here we have another advance in the title and the incommunicable name of Jehovah, the I AM is introduced. Faith’s day grows brighter as the hours roll on, and her prayers grow more full and mighty. Cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved. Even we who were so destroyed. No extremity is too great for the power of God. He can save at the last point, and that too by simply turning his smiling face upon his afflicted. Men can do little with their arms, but God can do all things with a glance. Oh, to live forever in the light of Jehovah’s countenance.
