Psalms 83

God Implored to Confound His Enemies.

A Song, a Psalm of Asaph.

O God, a do not remain quiet;
b Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
For behold, Your enemies c make an uproar,
And d those who hate You have
Lit lifted up the head
f exalted themselves.
They g make shrewd plans against Your people,
Or consult
conspire together against i Your
Or hidden ones
treasured ones.
They have said, “Come, and k let us wipe them out
Lit from
as a nation,
That the m name of Israel be remembered no more.”
For they have
Or consulted
o conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant:
The tents of p Edom and the q Ishmaelites,
r Moab and the s Hagrites;
t Gebal and u Ammon and v Amalek,
w Philistia with the inhabitants of x Tyre;
y Assyria also has joined with them;
They have become
Lit an arm
a help to the aa children of Lot.
Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interlude

Deal with them ac as with Midian,
As ad with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,
10 Who were destroyed at En-dor,
Who ae became as dung for the ground.
11 Make their nobles like af Oreb and Zeeb
And all their princes like ag Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 Who said ah Let us possess for ourselves
The ai pastures of God.”

13 O my God, make them like the
Or tumbleweed
ak whirling dust,
Like al chaff before the wind.
14 Like am fire that burns the forest
And like a flame that an sets the mountains on fire,
15 So pursue them ao with Your tempest
And terrify them with Your storm.
16  ap Fill their faces with dishonor,
That they may seek Your name, O  Lord.
17 Let them be aq ashamed and dismayed forever,
And let them be humiliated and perish,
18 That they may ar know that as You alone, whose name is the  Lord,
Are the at Most High over all the earth.
