Bible: Psalm 83
Psalm 83 1
83:1 A song, a psalm of Asaph.
O God, do not be silent!
Do not ignore us! 2 Do not be inactive, O God!
83:2 For look, your enemies are making a commotion;
those who hate you are hostile. 3
83:3 They carefully plot 4 against your people,
83:4 They say, “Come on, let’s annihilate them so they are no longer a nation! 7
Then the name of Israel will be remembered no more.”
they form an alliance 10 against you.
83:6 It includes 11 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Moab and the Hagrites, 12
83:7 Gebal, 13 Ammon, and Amalek,
Philistia and the inhabitants of Tyre. 14
83:8 Even Assyria has allied with them,
lending its strength to the descendants of Lot. 15 (Selah)
83:9 Do to them as you did to Midian 16 –
as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the Kishon River! 17
83:10 They were destroyed at Endor; 18
their corpses were like manure 19 on the ground.
83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, 20
and all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna, 21
83:13 O my God, make them like dead thistles, 24
like dead weeds blown away by 25 the wind!
83:14 Like the fire that burns down the forest,
or the flames that consume the mountainsides, 26
83:15 chase them with your gale winds,
and terrify 27 them with your windstorm.
83:16 Cover 28 their faces with shame,
83:17 May they be humiliated and continually terrified! 31
May they die in shame! 32
the sovereign king 35 over all the earth.
