Psalm 83
American King James Version

God, Don't Keep Silent

1Keep not you silence, O God: hold not your peace, and be not still, O God.

2For, see, your enemies make a tumult: and they that hate you have lifted up the head.

3They have taken crafty counsel against your people, and consulted against your hidden ones.

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.

5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against you:

6The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8Assur also is joined with them: they have helped the children of Lot. Selah.

9Do to them as to the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

10Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

11Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yes, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

12Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

13O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

14As the fire burns a wood, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire;

15So persecute them with your tempest, and make them afraid with your storm.

16Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek your name, O LORD.

17Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yes, let them be put to shame, and perish:

18That men may know that you, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, are the most high over all the earth.
