Psalm 83

Psalms: 83

Prayer for the defeat of Israel's Enemies.  Psalm 83(v82)

A Song. A Psalm of Asaph.

1O God, do not keep silence;
do not hold thy peace or be still, O God!
2For lo, thy enemies are in tumult;
those who hate thee have raised their heads.
3They lay crafty plans against thy people;
they consult together against thy protected ones.
4They say, "Come, let us wipe them out as a nation;
let the name of Israel be remembered no more!"
5Yea, they conspire with one accord;
against thee they make a covenant -
6the tents of Edom and the Ish'maelites,
Moab and the Hagrites,
7Gebal and Ammon and Am'alek,
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8Assyria also has joined them;
they are the strong arm of the children of Lot. Selah

9Do to them as thou didst to Mid'ian,
as to Sis'era and Jabin at the river Kishon,
10who were destroyed at En-dor,
who became dung for the ground.
11Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
all their princes like Zebah and Zalmun'na,
12who said, "Let us take possession
for ourselves of the pastures of God."

13O my God, make them like whirling dust,
like chaff before the wind.
14As fire consumes the forest,
as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15so do thou pursue them with thy tempest
and terrify them with thy hurricane!
16Fill their faces with shame,
that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
17Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever;
let them perish in disgrace.
18Let them know that thou alone,
whose name is the Lord,
art the most high over all the earth.
