Psalms 83

Darby Translation

1{A Song; a Psalm of Asaph.} O God, keep not silence; hold not thy peace, and be not still, O �God:
2For behold, thine enemies make a tumult; and they that hate thee lift up the head.
3They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult against thy hidden ones:
4They say, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, and let the name of Israel be mentioned no more.
5For they have consulted together with one heart: they have made an alliance together against thee.
6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagarites;
7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia, with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8Asshur also is joined with them: they are an arm to the sons of Lot. Selah.
9Do unto them as to Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the torrent of Kishon:
10Who were destroyed at Endor; they became as dung for the ground.
11Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb; and all their chiefs as Zebah and as Zalmunna.
12For they have said, Let us take to ourselves God's dwelling-places in possession.
13O my God, make them like a whirling thing, like stubble before the wind.
14As fire burneth a forest, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire,
15So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy whirlwind.
16Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.
17Let them be put to shame and be dismayed for ever, and let them be confounded and perish:
18That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, art the Most High over all the earth.
