83:1 <A Song. A Psalm. Of Asaph.> O God, do not keep quiet: let your lips be open and take no rest, O God.
83:2 For see! those who make war on you are out of control; your haters are lifting up their heads.
83:3 They have made wise designs against your people, talking together against those whom you keep in a secret place.
83:4 They have said, Come, let us put an end to them as a nation; so that the name of Israel may go out of man's memory.
83:5 For they have all come to an agreement; they are all joined together against you:
83:6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagarites;
83:7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; the Philistines and the people of Tyre;
83:8 Assur is joined with them; they have become the support of the children of Lot. (Selah.)
83:9 Do to them what you did to the Midianites; what you did to Sisera and Jabin, at the stream of Kishon:
83:10 Who came to destruction at En-dor; their bodies became dust and waste.
83:11 Make their chiefs like Oreb and Zeeb; and all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna:
83:12 Who have said, Let us take for our heritage the resting-place of God.
83:13 O my God, make them like the rolling dust; like dry stems before the wind.
83:14 As fire burning a wood, and as a flame causing fire on the mountains,
83:15 So go after them with your strong wind, and let them be full of fear because of your storm.
83:16 Let their faces be full of shame; so that they may give honour to your name, O Lord.
83:17 Let them be overcome and troubled for ever; let them be put to shame and come to destruction;
83:18 So that men may see that you only, whose name is Yahweh, are Most High over all the earth.
