Psalms 83

Psalms 83:1  
A Song. A Psalm. Of Asaph. O God, do not keep quiet: let your lips be open and take no rest, O God.

Psalms 83:2  
For see! those who make war on you are out of control; your haters are lifting up their heads.

Psalms 83:3  
They have made wise designs against your people, talking together against those whom you keep in a secret place.

Psalms 83:4  
They have said, Come, let us put an end to them as a nation; so that the name of Israel may go out of man's memory.

Psalms 83:5  
For they have all come to an agreement; they are all joined together against you:

Psalms 83:6  
The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagarites;

Psalms 83:7  
Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; the Philistines and the people of Tyre;

Psalms 83:8  
Assur is joined with them; they have become the support of the children of Lot. (Selah.)

Psalms 83:9  
Do to them what you did to the Midianites; what you did to Sisera and Jabin, at the stream of Kishon:

Psalms 83:10  
Who came to destruction at En-dor; their bodies became dust and waste.

Psalms 83:11  
Make their chiefs like Oreb and Zeeb; and all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna:

Psalms 83:12  
Who have said, Let us take for our heritage the resting-place of God.

Psalms 83:13  
O my God, make them like the rolling dust; like dry stems before the wind.

Psalms 83:14  
As fire burning a wood, and as a flame causing fire on the mountains,

Psalms 83:15  
So go after them with your strong wind, and let them be full of fear because of your storm.

Psalms 83:16  
Let their faces be full of shame; so that they may give honour to your name, O Lord.

Psalms 83:17  
Let them be overcome and troubled for ever; let them be put to shame and come to destruction;

Psalms 83:18  
So that men may see that you only, whose name is Yahweh, are Most High over all the earth.
