Psalm 83


A song. A psalm of Asaph.s

God, do not keep silent.

Do not be deaf, God; do not be quiet.t

See how your enemies make an uproar;

those who hate you have acted arrogantly.C,u

They devise clever schemes against your people;

they conspire against your treasured ones.v

They say, “Come, lets wipe them out as a nation

so that Israel’s name will no longer be remembered.”w

For they have conspired with one mind;

they form an allianceD against youx

the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,y

Moab and the Hagrites,z

Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek,aa

Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre.ab

Even Assyria has joined them;

they lend supportE to the sons of Lot.F,ac


Deal with them as you did with Midian,ad

as you did with Sisera

and Jabin at the Kishon River.ae

10 They were destroyed at En-dor;

they became manure for the ground.af

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,ag

and all their tribal leaders like Zebah and Zalmunna,ah

12 who said, “Lets seize God’s pastures for ourselves.”ai

13 Make them like tumbleweed, my God,

like straw before the wind.aj

14 As fire burns a forest,

as a flame blazes through mountains,ak

15 so pursue them with your tempest

and terrify them with your storm.al

16 Cover their faces with shame

so that they will seek your name, Lord.am

17 Let them be put to shame and terrified forever;

let them perish in disgrace.an

18 May they know that you alone—

whose name is the Lord

are the Most High over the whole earth.a


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
