1

<A Song. A Psalm. Of Asaph.>\

2

\83:1\O God, do not keep quiet: let your lips be open and take no rest, O God.

3

\83:2\For see! those who make war on you are out of control; your haters are lifting up their heads.

4

\83:3\They have made wise designs against your people, talking together against those whom you keep in a secret place.

5

\83:4\They have said, Come, let us put an end to them as a nation; so that the name of Israel may go out of man's memory.

6

\83:5\For they have all come to an agreement; they are all joined together against you:

7

\83:6\The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagarites;

8

\83:7\Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; the Philistines and the people of Tyre;

9

\83:8\Assur is joined with them; they have become the support of the children of Lot. (Selah.)

10

\83:9\Do to them what you did to the Midianites; what you did to Sisera and Jabin, at the stream of Kishon:

11

\83:10\Who came to destruction at En-dor; their bodies became dust and waste.

12

\83:11\Make their chiefs like Oreb and Zeeb; and all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna:

13

\83:12\Who have said, Let us take for our heritage the resting-place of God.

14

\83:13\O my God, make them like the rolling dust; like dry stems before the wind.

15

\83:14\As fire burning a wood, and as a flame causing fire on the mountains,

16

\83:15\So go after them with your strong wind, and let them be full of fear because of your storm.

17

\83:16\Let their faces be full of shame; so that they may give honour to your name, O Lord.

18

\83:17\Let them be overcome and troubled for ever; let them be put to shame and come to destruction;

19

\83:18\So that men may see that you only, whose name is Yahweh, are Most High over all the earth.
