Psalms 83

A song. A psalm of Asaph.
 1  O God, do not be silent!
  Do not be deaf.
  Do not be quiet, O God.
 2  Don't you hear the uproar of your enemies?
  Don't you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up?
 3  They devise crafty schemes against your people;
  they conspire against your precious ones.
 4  "Come," they say, "let us wipe out Israel as a nation.
  We will destroy the very memory of its existence."
 5  Yes, this was their unanimous decision.
  They signed a treaty as allies against you—
 6  these Edomites and Ishmaelites;
  Moabites and Hagrites;
 7  Gebalites, Ammonites, and Amalekites;
  and people from Philistia and Tyre.
 8  Assyria has joined them, too,
  and is allied with the descendants of Lot.    Interlude

 9  Do to them as you did to the Midianites
  and as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the Kishon River.
 10  They were destroyed at Endor,
  and their decaying corpses fertilized the soil.
 11  Let their mighty nobles die as Oreb and Zeeb did.
  Let all their princes die like Zebah and Zalmunna,
 12  for they said, "Let us seize for our own use
  these pasturelands of God!"
 13  O my God, scatter them like tumbleweed,
  like chaff before the wind!
 14  As a fire burns a forest
  and as a flame sets mountains ablaze,
 15  chase them with your fierce storm;
  terrify them with your tempest.
 16  Utterly disgrace them
  until they submit to your name, O LORD.
 17  Let them be ashamed and terrified forever.
  Let them die in disgrace.
 18  Then they will learn that you alone are called the LORD,
  that you alone are the Most High,
  supreme over all the earth.
