2 83:1A song, or Psalm of Asaph. Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
3 83:2For lo, thy enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
4 83:3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
5 83:4They 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 83:5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee,
7 83:6The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
8 83:7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
9 83:8Assur also is joined with them: they have helped the children of Lot. Selah.
10 83:9Do to them as to the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
11 83:10Who perished at En-dor: they became as dung for the earth.
12 83:11Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yes, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
13 83:12Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
14 83:13O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
15 83:14As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
16 83:15So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
17 83:16Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
18 83:17Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yes, let them be put to shame, and perish:
19 83:18That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
