Psalm 83
Douay-Rheims Bible

God, Don't Keep Silent

1{82:1}A canticle of a psalm for Asaph. [2] O God, who shall be like to thee? hold not thy peace, neither be thou still, O God.

2{82:3}For lo, thy enemies have made a noise: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3{82:4}They have taken a malicious counsel against thy people, and have consulted against thy saints.

4{82:5}They have said: Come and let us destroy them, so that they be not a nation: and let the name of Israel be remembered no more.

5{82:6}For they have contrived with one consent: they have made a covenant together against thee,

6{82:7}The tabernacle of the Edomites, and the Ishmahelites: Moab, and the Agarens,

7{82:8}Gebal, and Ammon and Amalec: the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre.

8{82:9}Yea, and the Assyrian also is joined with them: they are come to the aid of the sons of Lot.

9{82:10}Do to them as thou didst to Madian and to Sisara: as to Jabin at the brook of Cisson.

10{82:11}Who perished at Endor: and became as dung for the earth.

11{82:12}Make their princes like Oreb, and Zeb, and Zebee, and Salmana. All their princes,

12{82:13}Who have said: Let us possess the sanctuary of God for an inheritance.

13{82:14}O my God, make them like a wheel; and as stubble before the wind.

14{82:15}As fire which burneth the wood: and as a flame burning mountains:

15{82:16}So shalt thou pursue them with thy tempest: and shalt trouble them in thy wrath.

16{82:17}Fill their faces with shame; and they shall seek thy name, O Lord.

17{82:18}Let them be ashamed and troubled for ever and ever: and let them be confounded and perish.

18{82:19}And let them know that the Lord is thy name: thou alone art the most High over all the earth.
