Psalm 83
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1A SONG. A PSALM OF ASAPH. O God, let there be no silence to You, "" Do not be silent, nor be quiet, O God.

2For behold, Your enemies roar, "" And those hating You have lifted up the head,

3They take crafty counsel against Your people, "" And consult against Your hidden ones.

4They have said, “Come, and we cut them off from [being] a nation, "" And the name of Israel is not remembered anymore.”

5For they consulted in heart together, "" They make a covenant against You,

6Tents of Edom, and Ishmaelites, Moab, and the Hagarenes,

7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with inhabitants of Tyre,

8Asshur is also joined with them, "" They have been an arm to sons of Lot. Selah.

9Do to them as Midian, "" As Sisera, as Jabin, at the Brook of Kishon.

10They were destroyed at Endor, "" They were dung for the ground!

11Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb, "" And as Zebah and Zalmunna—all their princes,

12Who have said, “Let us occupy the pastures of God for ourselves.”

13O my God, make them as a rolling thing, "" As stubble before wind.

14As a fire burns a forest, "" And as a flame sets hills on fire,

15So You pursue them with Your whirlwind, "" And trouble them with Your windstorm.

16Fill their faces [with] shame, "" And they seek Your Name, O YHWH.

17They are ashamed and troubled forever, "" Indeed, they are confounded and lost.

18And they know that You—Your Name [is] YHWH—By Yourself [are] the Most High over all the earth!
