Psalms 83

1O God, keep thou not silence. Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult, and those who hate thee have lifted up the head. 3They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult together against thy hidden ones. 4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5For they have consulted together with one consent. They make a covenant against thee: 6the tents of Edom, and the Ishmaelites, Moab, and the Hagarenes, 7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre, 8Assyria also is joined with them; they have helped the sons of Lot. Selah. 9Do thou to them as to Midian, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon, 10who perished at Endor, who became as dung for the earth. 11Make their ranking men like Oreb and Zeeb, yea, all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna, 12who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God. 13O my God, make them like the whirling dust, as stubble before the wind, 14as the fire that burns the forest, and as the flame that sets the mountains on fire. 15So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy storm. 16Fill their faces with confusion, that they may seek thy name, O Jehovah. 17Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever. Yea, let them be confounded and perish, 18that they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, are the Most High over all the earth.
