Psalm 83
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1A SONG. A PSALM OF ASAPH. O God, let there be no silence to You, || Do not be silent, nor be quiet, O God.

2For behold, Your enemies roar, || And those hating You have lifted up the head,

3They take crafty counsel against Your people, || And consult against Your hidden ones.

4They have said, “Come, and we cut them off from [being] a nation, || And the name of Israel is not remembered anymore.”

5For they consulted in heart together, || They make a covenant against You,

6Tents of Edom, and Ishmaelites, Moab, and the Hagarenes,

7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with inhabitants of Tyre,

8Asshur is also joined with them, || They have been an arm to sons of Lot. Selah.

9Do to them as Midian, || As Sisera, as Jabin, at the Brook of Kishon.

10They were destroyed at Endor, || They were dung for the ground!

11Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb, || And as Zebah and Zalmunna—all their princes,

12Who have said, “Let us occupy the pastures of God for ourselves.”

13O my God, make them as a rolling thing, || As stubble before wind.

14As a fire burns a forest, || And as a flame sets hills on fire,

15So You pursue them with Your whirlwind, || And trouble them with Your windstorm.

16Fill their faces [with] shame, || And they seek Your Name, O YHWH.

17They are ashamed and troubled forever, || Indeed, they are confounded and lost.

18And they know that You—Your Name [is] YHWH—By Yourself [are] the Most High over all the earth!
