|Psalm 80:1-2; 8-19
"Hear us, Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead Joseph like a flock.
You who sit enthroned between
Awaken your might;
come and save us...."
"God presides in the great assembly;
he renders judgment among the “gods”:
How long will you defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked?
Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked..."
