Psalm 83
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

O God, Be Not Silent

1A song of chanting to Asaph. O God, not stillness to thee: thou wilt not be silent, and thou wilt not rest, O God.

2For behold, thine enemies will be clamorous; and they hating thee lifted up the head.

3Against thy people they will make crafty consultation, and they will counsel against thy hidden ones.

4They said, Come, and we will cut them off from a nation; and the name of Israel shall no more be remembered.

5For they counseled together with the heart: they will cut out a covenant against thee:

6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagarites.

7Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; the rovers with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8Also Assur was joined with them: they were an arm to the sons of Lot Silence.

9Do to them as Midian, as Sisera, as Jabin, at the torrent Bison:

10They were destroyed at the fountain of the dwelling: they were dung to the earth.

11Set them their nobles as Oreb, and as Zeeb: and as Zebah and as Zalmunna, all their princes:

12Who said, We will inherit for us the dwellings of God.

13O my God, set them as a wheel; as straw before the wind.

14As fire will burn the forest, and as the flame will cause the mountains to burn.

15So wilt thou pursue them with thy tempest, and thou wilt terrify them with thy whirlwind:

16Fill their face with contempt, and they shall seek thy name, O Jehovah.

17They shall be ashamed and terrified, even to forever; and they shall be put to shame and perish.

18And they shall know that thou, thy name Jehovah alone, the Most High over all the earth.
