Psalms 83

A Song of a Psalm of Asaph.

1 O God, who shall be compared to You? Be not silent, neither be still, O God. 2For behold, Your enemies have made a noise; and they that hate You have lifted up the head. 3Against Your people they have craftily imagined a device, and have taken counsel against Your saints. 4They have said, Come, and let us utterly destroy them out of the nation; and let the name of Israel be remembered no more. 5For they have taken counsel together with one consent; they have made a confederacy against You; 6even the tents of the Edomites, and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites; 7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines also, with them that dwell at Tyre. 8Yea, Assyria too has come with them; they have become a help to the children of Lot. Pause. 9Do to them as to Midian, and to Sisera; as to Jabin at the Brook of Kishon. 10They were utterly destroyed at Endor; they became as dung for the earth. 11Make their princes as Oreb and Zeeb, and Zebah and Zalmunna; even all their princes, 12who said, let us take to ourselves the altar of God as an inheritance. 13O my God, make them as a wheel, as stubble before the face of the wind. 14As fire which shall burn up the wood, as the flame may consume the mountains; 15so shall You persecute them with Your tempest, and trouble them in Your anger. 16Fill their faces with dishonor; so shall they seek Your name, O Lord. 17Let them be ashamed and troubled forevermore; yea, let them be confounded and destroyed. 18And let them know that Your name is Lord; that You alone are Most High over all the earth.
