Psalm 83
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

O God, Be Not Silent

1(82:1) A Song of a Psalm for Asaph. O God, who shall be compared to thee? be not silent, neither be still, O God.

2(82:2) For behold, thine enemies have made a noise; and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3(82:3) Against thy people they have craftily imagined a device, and have taken counsel against thy saints.

4(82:4) They have said, Come, and let us utterly destroy them out of the nation; and let the name of Israel be remembered no more at all.

5(82:5) For they have taken counsel together with one consent: they have made a confederacy against thee;

6(82:6) even the tents of the Idumeans, and the Ismaelites; Moab, and the Agarenes;

7(82:7) Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalec; the Philistines also, with them that dwell at Tyre.

8(82:8) Yea, Assur too is come with them: they have become a help to the children of Lot. Pause.

9(82:9) Do thou to them as to Madiam, and to Sisera; as to Jabin at the brook of Kison.

10(82:10) They were utterly destroyed at Aendor: they became as dung for the earth.

11(82:11) Make their princes as Oreb and Zeb, and Zebee and Salmana; even all their princes:

12(82:12) who said, let us take to ourselves the altar of God as an inheritance.

13(82:13) O my God, make them as a wheel; as stubble before the face of the wind.

14(82:14) As fire which shall burn up a wood, as the flame may consume the mountains;

15(82:15) so shalt thou persecute them with thy tempest, and trouble them in thine anger.

16(82:16) Fill their faces with dishonour; so shall they seek thy name, O Lord.

17(82:17) Let them be ashamed and troubled for evermore; yea, let them be confounded and destroyed.

18(82:18) And let them know that thy name is Lord; that thou alone art Most High over all the earth.
