Psalm 83
Bishops' Bible of 1568 Par ▾ 

O God, Be Not Silent

1A song, the psalme of Asaph. Holde not thy tongue O Lorde: kepe not styll scilence, refraine not thy selfe O Lorde.

2For beholde, thyne enemies make an vprore: and they that hate thee, haue lifted vp their head.

3They haue deuised shrewde counsell against thy people: and they haue consulted against thyne, whom thou defendest.

4They haue said, come, and let vs roote them out, that they be no more a people: and that the name of Israel may be no more in remembraunce.

5For they haue conspired all in one minde: & are confederate against thee.

6The pauilions of Edom and the Ismaelites: of Moab, and Hagerites,

7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalec: the Philistines with the inhabitauntes of Tyre.

8Assur also is ioyned vnto them: they were a great ayde to the chyldren of Lot. Selah.

9But do thou vnto them, as vnto Midian: as vnto Sisera, as vnto Iabin at the brooke Kishon.

10Whiche perished at Ein Dor: and became as the doung of the earth.

11Make them, their princes, and al their captaynes: lyke Oreb, and lyke Zeeb, and lyke Salmunna.

12Whiche sayd, let vs take to our selues: the houses of God in possession.

13O my Lorde, make them lyke vnto a wheele: and as chaffe before the winde.

14Lyke as a fire that burneth vp the wood: and as the flambe that consumeth the mountaynes.

15Persecute them euen so with thy tempest: and make them afrayde with thy storme.

16Make shame to appeare in their faces: that they may seeke thy name O God.

17Let them be confounded and astonied with feare euer more & more: let them be put to shame, and perishe.

18And let them knowe that thou in thy name God eternall art only: O thou the most highest ouer all the earth.
