Tehillim - Psalms 83


1A Song, a Psalm of Asaph.
2O God, keep not Thou silence;Hold not Thy peace, and be not still, O God.
3For, lo, Thine enemies are in an uproar;And they that hate Thee have lifted up the head.
4They hold crafty converse against Thy people,And take counsel against Thy treasured ones.
5They have said: ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.’
6For they have consulted together with one consent;Against Thee do they make a covenant;
7The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;Moab, and the Hagrites;
8Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek;Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
9Assyria also is joined with them;They have been an arm to the children of Lot.Selah
10Do Thou unto them as unto Midian;As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook Kishon;
11Who were destroyed at En-dor;They became as dung for the earth.
12Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,And like Zebah and Zalmunna all their princes;
13Who said: ‘Let us take to ourselves in possessionThe habitations of God.’
14O my God, make them like the whirling dust;As stubble before the wind.
15As the fire that burneth the forest,And as the flame that setteth the mountains ablaze;
16So pursue them with Thy tempest,And affright them with Thy storm.
17Fill their faces with shame;That they may seek Thy name, O Lord.
18Let them be ashamed and affrighted for ever;Yea, let them be abashed and perish;
19That they may know that it is Thou alone whose name is the Lord,The Most High over all the earth.
