Psalm 83

O God, Be Not Silent

1A Canticle Psalm of Asaph. O God, who will ever be like you? Do not be silent, and do not be unmoved, O God.

2For behold, your enemies have sounded off, and those who hate you have carried out a head.

3They have acted with malice in counsel over your people, and they have plotted against your holy ones.

4They have said, “Come, let us scatter them from the nations and not allow the name of Israel to be remembered any longer.”

5For they plotted unanimously. Joined together against you, they ordained a covenant:

6the tabernacle of Edomites and Ishmaelites, and Moab and the Hagarites,

7and Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, the foreigners among the inhabitants of Tyre.

8For even Assur comes with them. They have become the helpers of the sons of Lot.

9Do to them as you did to Midian and Sisera, just as to Jabin at the torrent of Kishon.

10They perished at Endor, and they became like the dung of the earth.

11Set their leaders to be like Oreb and Zeeb, and Zebah and Zalmunna: all their leaders

12who said, “Let us possess the Sanctuary of God for an inheritance.”

13My God, set them like a wheel, and like stubble before the face of the wind.

14Set them like a fire burning up the forest, and like a flame burning up the mountains.

15So will you pursue them in your tempest, and disturb them in your wrath.

16Fill their faces with shame, and they will seek your name, O Lord.

17Let them be ashamed and troubled, from age to age, and let them be confounded and perish.

18And let them know that the Lord is your name. You alone are the Most High in all the earth.
