Psalms 83

God Implored to Confound His Enemies.

A Song, a Psalm of Asaph.

1 O God, a  do not remain quiet;
b  Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
2For behold, Your enemies c  make an uproar,
And d  those who hate You have
Lit lifted up the head
f  exalted themselves.
3They g  make shrewd plans against Your people,
Or consult
conspire together against i  Your
Or hidden ones
treasured ones.
4They 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.”
5For they have
Or consulted
o  conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant:
6The tents of p  Edom and the q  Ishmaelites,
r  Moab and the s  Hagrites;
7 t  Gebal and u  Ammon and v  Amalek,
w  Philistia with the inhabitants of x  Tyre;
8 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

9Deal with them ac  as with Midian,
As ad  with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,
10Who were destroyed at En-dor,
Who ae  became as dung for the ground.
11Make their nobles like af  Oreb and Zeeb
And all their princes like ag  Zebah and Zalmunna,
12Who said ah  Let us possess for ourselves
The ai  pastures of God.”

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