Israel had rebelled against their God here the Psalmist is crying out to God to be delivered and forgiven.

  1. Psalm 79
    8-9 Do not hold the crimes of our ancestors against us. Reach out to us soon with your compassion,because we are helpless. Help us, O God, our savior, for the glory of your name. Rescue us, and forgive our sins for the honor of your name.

    Psalm 80
    1 Open your ears, O Shepherd of Israel, the one who leads the descendants of Joseph like sheep, the one who is enthroned over the angels.

    17-18 Let your power rest on the man you have chosen, the son of man you strengthened for yourself. Then we will never turn away from you. Give us life again, and we will call on you.
