Psalm 83

Prayer for Judgement on Israel’s Foes

A Song. A Psalm of Asaph.
1 O God, do not keep silence;
   do not hold your peace or be still, O God!
2 Even now your enemies are in tumult;
   those who hate you have raised their heads.
3 They lay crafty plans against your people;
   they consult together against those you protect.
4 They say, ‘Come, let us wipe them out as a nation;
   let the name of Israel be remembered no more.’
5 They conspire with one accord;
   against you they make a covenant—
6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
   Moab and the Hagrites,
7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,
   Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assyria also has joined them;
   they are the strong arm of the children of Lot.
          Selah


9 Do to them as you did to Midian,
   as to Sisera and Jabin at the Wadi Kishon,
10 who were destroyed at En-dor,
   who became dung for the ground.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
   all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 who said, ‘Let us take the pastures of God
   for our own possession.’


13 O my God, make them like whirling dust,*
   like chaff before the wind.
14 As fire consumes the forest,
   as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15 so pursue them with your tempest
   and terrify them with your hurricane.
16 Fill their faces with shame,
   so that they may seek your name, O Lord.
17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever;
   let them perish in disgrace.
18 Let them know that you alone,
   whose name is the Lord,
   are the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 33

The Greatness and Goodness of God


1 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous.
   Praise befits the upright.
2 Praise the Lord with the lyre;
   make melody to him with the harp of ten strings.
3 Sing to him a new song;
   play skilfully on the strings, with loud shouts.


4 For the word of the Lord is upright,
   and all his work is done in faithfulness.
5 He loves righteousness and justice;
   the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.


6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
   and all their host by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle;
   he put the deeps in storehouses.


8 Let all the earth fear the Lord;
   let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9 For he spoke, and it came to be;
   he commanded, and it stood firm.


10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
   he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
11 The counsel of the Lord stands for ever,
   the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12 Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord,
   the people whom he has chosen as his heritage.


13 The Lord looks down from heaven;
   he sees all humankind.
14 From where he sits enthroned he watches
   all the inhabitants of the earth—
15 he who fashions the hearts of them all,
   and observes all their deeds.
16 A king is not saved by his great army;
   a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
17 The war horse is a vain hope for victory,
   and by its great might it cannot save.


18 Truly the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
   on those who hope in his steadfast love,
19 to deliver their soul from death,
   and to keep them alive in famine.


20 Our soul waits for the Lord;
   he is our help and shield.
21 Our heart is glad in him,
   because we trust in his holy name.
22 Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
   even as we hope in you.
