Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19

IV: Broader Context


(FS) A. NT & PRIMITIVE CHRISTIANITY

"Light shining in darkness", see Luke 1: 78-79; 2 Cor. 4: 6; John 1: 1-14

(FS) B. OT & JUDAISM

"Shepherd of Israel": Psalm 23, 74:1, 77:20, 78:52, 71-72, 79:13

"Shine forth": like in the Exodus? See Ex. 24: 16-17, 40: 34-35. In a new "mighty act"? See Isaiah 40:5, 60: 1-2.

"Make your face to shine" reminds me of Aaron's blessing (Exodus 6: 25)
Imagery of Vine in vv. 8-16: Jeremiah 2:21, Hosea 16:1, Isaiah 5:1ff

"Right-hand man", "son of man": see Psalm 2, Psalm 110:1

Isaiah 9: 2-7, "light shining in the darkness"
