Psalms Chapter 83

1 o

2 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

3 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

4 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

5 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.

6 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

7 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

8 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

9 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

10 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

11 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

12 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

13 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

14 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

15 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

16 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

17 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

18 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

19 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
