Psalm 83

*A Song or Psalm ||of Asaph.

aKeep not thou silence, O God:

bHold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

For, lo, thine enemies cmake a tumult:

And they that dhate thee have elifted up the head.

fThey have taken crafty counsel against thy people,

And consulted against gthy hidden ones.

They have said, Come, and let us hcut them off ifrom being a nation;

That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

For they have kconsulted together with one consent:

They lare confederate against thee:

The tabernacles of mEdom, and the nIshmaelites;

Of mMoab, and the oHagarenes;

psGebal, and mAmmon, and qAmalek;

The rPhilistines with the inhabitants of sTyre;

stAssur also is joined with them:

They have uholpen xthe children of Lot. Selah.

Do unto them as unto the yMidianites;

As to zSisera, as to Jabin, at athe brook of Kison:

10  Which perished at bEn-dor:

They became cas dung for the earth.

11  Make their nobles like dOreb, and like dZeeb:

Yea, all their eprinces as fZebah, and as fZalmunna:

12  Who said, gLet us take to ourselves

The hhouses of God in possession.

13  O my God, make them ilike a wheel;

kAs the stubble ipbefore the wind.

14  lAs the fire burneth a wood,

And as the flame msetteth the mountains on fire;

15  So ipersecute them nwith thy otempest,

And make them afraid with thy ipstorm.

16  qFill their faces with shame;

That they may seek thy name, O Lord.

17  Let them be rconfounded and troubled for ever;

Yea, let them be rput to shame, and perish:

18  That men smay know that thou, twhose name ualone is JEHOVAH,

Art wthe most high over all the earth.
