Psalm 83
King James BibleEnglish Standard Version
1A Song or Psalm of Asaph. Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.1O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God!

6The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;6the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites,
7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;7Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.8Asshur also has joined them; they are the strong arm of the children of Lot. Selah
9Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:9Do to them as you did to Midian, as to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,
10Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.10who were destroyed at En-dor, who became dung for the ground.
11Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:11Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.12who said, “Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of God.”
13O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.13O my God, make them like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind.
14As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;14As fire consumes the forest, as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.15so may you pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your hurricane!

17Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:17Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever; let them perish in disgrace,
18That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.18that they may know that you alone, whose name is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth.
