Psalms Chapter 83 (Index)

001  A Song or Psalm of Asaph. Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

002  For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

003  They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

004  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

005  For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

006  The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

007  Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

008  Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

009  Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

010  Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

011  Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

012  Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

013  O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

014  As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

015  So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

016  Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

017  Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

018  That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
