Psalms 83 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

A song. A Psalm of Asaph.

83:1O God, keep not thou silence:

Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

83:2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult;

And they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

83:3Thy take crafty counsel against thy people,

And consult together against thy hidden ones.

83:4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;

That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

83:5For they have consulted together with one consent;

Against thee do they make a covenant:

83:6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;

Moab, and the Hagarenes;

83:7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek;

Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre:

83:8Assyria also is joined with them;

They have helped the children of Lot.


83:9Do thou unto them as unto Midian,

As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;

83:10Who perished at Endor,

Who became as dung for the earth.

83:11Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb;

Yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;

83:12Who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession

The habitations of God.

83:13O my God, make them like the whirling dust;

As stubble before the wind.

83:14As the fire that burneth the forest,

And as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire,

83:15So pursue them with thy tempest,

And terrify them with thy storm.

83:16Fill their faces with confusion,

That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.

83:17Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever;

Yea, let them be confounded and perish;

83:18That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah,

Art the Most High over all the earth.
