Chapter 83

PSA.83:1 A Song. A Psalm of Asaph. Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God!
PSA.83:2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
PSA.83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
PSA.83:4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
PSA.83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You:
PSA.83:6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites;
PSA.83:7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
PSA.83:8 Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah
PSA.83:9 Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera, As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon,
PSA.83:10 Who perished at En Dor, Who became as refuse on the earth.
PSA.83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
PSA.83:12 Who said, “Let us take for ourselves The pastures of God for a possession.”
PSA.83:13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like the chaff before the wind!
PSA.83:14 As the fire burns the woods, And as the flame sets the mountains on fire,
PSA.83:15 So pursue them with Your tempest, And frighten them with Your storm.
PSA.83:16 Fill their faces with shame, That they may seek Your name, O LORD.
PSA.83:17 Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,
PSA.83:18 That they may know that You, whose name alone is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.
