PSALM 83

by Isahiah62

1. A psalm, a song of Asaph.

2. O God, have no silence, do not be silent and do not be still, O God.

3. For behold, Your enemies stir, and those who hate You raise their heads.

4. Against Your people they plot cunningly, and they take counsel against Your protected ones.

5. They said, “Come, let us destroy them from [being] a nation, and the name of Israel will no longer be remembered.”

6. For they have taken counsel with one accord; against You they form a pact.

7. The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites.

8. Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre.

9. Also Assyria joined them; they were the arm of the children of Lot forever.

10. Do to them as [to] Midian; as [to] Sisera, as [to] Jabin in the brook Kishon.

11. They were destroyed in En-Dor; they were [as] dung on the ground.

12. Make them, their nobles, as Oreb and as Zeeb, and as Zebah and as Zalmuna all their princes,

13. Who said, “Let us inherit for ourselves the dwellings of God.”

14. My God, make them like thistles, like stubble before the wind.

15. As a fire that burns in a forest and as a flame that burns mountains.

16. So will You pursue them with Your tempest, and with Your whirlwind You will terrify them.

17. Fill their faces with shame, and they will seek Your countenance, O Lord.

18. Let them be ashamed and terrified forever; let them be disgraced and perish.

19. Let them know that You-Your name alone is the Lord, Most High over all the earth.
