Psalms 83:1-18

A Song or Psalm of Asaph. 83  Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2  For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3  They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5  For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: 6  The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7  Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8  Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. 9  Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: 10  Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. 11  Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: 12  Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. 13  O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. 14  As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; 15  So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. 16  Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD. 17  Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 18  That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
