|<< Psalm 83 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
God, who is like you? Do not be silent, neither be still, oh God!
2Because, behold, your enemies are enraged and your haters lift up the head against your people!
3They forged a secret in their craftiness and counseled against your Holy Ones.
4And they said, “Come, we will destroy them from the nation and the name of Israel will be remembered no more!”
5Because they plotted together in their heart and established a covenant against you:
6The tents of Edom and of Arabians and of Moab and of the Gadarenes,
7The borders of Ammon and of Amalek and of the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tsor.
8Also the Assyrians have made agreement with them and they have been a help to the sons of Lot.
9Do to them as to Midian and as to Sisera and as to Nabin in the valley of Qishon,
10Who were exterminated at Endor and became dung on the ground.
11Cut them off and destroy them like Aureeb and like Zeeb and like Zebakh and like Tsalmunna- all their Rulers.
12They said, “We will inherit for us The City of God.”
13God, make them like a tumble weed and like a straw before the wind,
14Like fire that is left in a forest like a flame that burns the mountains.
15So chase them in your hurricane and trouble them in your whirlwinds.
16Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek your Name, Lord Jehovah!
17They shall be ashamed; they shall be troubled to an eternity of eternities; they shall be put to shame and they shall be destroyed!
18And they shall know that your Name is Lord Jehovah; you alone are exalted in all the Earth!
