    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 80:16

    It is burned with fire - That is, the vineyard. This is a description of the desolations that had come upon the nation, such as would come upon a vineyard if it were consumed by fire.

    It is cut down - It has been made desolate by fire and by the axe.

    They perish at the rebuke of thy countenance - At the frown on thy face, as if God has only to look upon people in anger, and they perish. The word they refers to those who were represented by the vine which had been brought out of Egypt - the people of the land.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 80:16

    80:16 They - Thy people, signified by the vine. So now he passes from the metaphor to the thing designed by it.
