Psalms 82

A canticle of a psalm for Asaph. O God, who shall be like to thee? hold not thy peace, neither be thou still, O God. For lo, thy enemies have made a noise: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken a malicious counsel against thy people, and have consulted against thy saints. They have said: Come and let us destroy them, so that they be not a nation: and let the name of Israel be remembered no more. For they have contrived with one consent: they have made a covenant together against thee, The tabernacle of the Edomites, and the Ishmahelites: Moab, and the Agarens, Gebal, and Ammon and Amalec: the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre. Yea, and the Assyrian also is joined with them: they are come to the aid of the sons of Lot. 10 Do to them as thou didst to Madian and to Sisara: as to Jabin at the brook of Cisson. 11 Who perished at Endor: and became as dung for the earth. 12 Make their princes like Oreb, and Zeb, and Zebee, and Salmana. All their princes, 13 Who have said: Let us possess the sanctuary of God for an inheritance. 14 O my God, make them like a wheel; and as stubble before the wind. 15 As fire which burneth the wood: and as a flame burning mountains: 16 So shalt thou pursue them with thy tempest: and shalt trouble them in thy wrath. 17 Fill their faces with shame; and they shall seek thy name, O Lord. 18 Let them be ashamed and troubled for ever and ever: and let them be confounded and perish. 19 And let them know that the Lord is thy name: thou alone art the most High over all the earth.
