Psalm 83
Coverdale Bible of 1535 Par ▾ 

O God, Be Not Silent

1Holde not thy tonge (o God) kepe not still sylece,, refrayne not yi self, o God.

2For lo, thy enemies make a murmuringe, & they yt hate the, lift vp their heade.

3They ymagin craftely agaynst thy people, & take councell agaynst thy secrete ones.

4Come (saye they) let vs rote them out from amonge the people, that the name of Israel maye be put out of remebraunce.

5For they haue cast their heades together with one consent, & are cofederate agaynst the.

6The tabernacles of the Edomites & Ismaelites, the Moabites & Hagarenes.

7Gebal, Ammon and Amalech: the Philistynes with them that dwell at Tyre.

8Assur also is ioyned vnto the & helpe the children of Loth.

9Sela. But do thou to them as vnto the Madianites, vnto Sisera and vnto Iabin by ye broke of Cyson.

10Which perished at Endor, & became as the doge of ye earth.

11Make their prynces like Oreb and Zeeb: Yee make all their prynces like as Zebea and Salmana.

12Which saye: we wil haue the houses of God in possession?

13O my God, make them like vnto a whele, and as the stuble before the wynde.

14Like as a fyre that burneth vp the wodd, & as the flame that consumeth the mountaynes.

15Persecute them euen so with thy tempest, & make them afrayed with thy storme.

16Make their faces ashamed (o LORDE) yt they maye seke thy name.

17Let the be cofounded & vexed euer more & more: Let the be put to shame & perish.

18That they maye knowe, that thou art alone, that thy name is the LORDE, and that thou only art the most hyest ouer all the earth.
