Psalm 83

Hold not your peace, O God :
 O God, be not silent or unmoved.
See how your enemies make uproar :
 how those that hate you have lifted up their heads.
For they lay shrewd plots against your people :
 they scheme against those whom you have cherished.
‘Come’, they say, ‘let us destroy them,
   that they may no longer be a nation :
 that the very name of Israel may be remembered no more.’
With one mind they conspire together :
 they make alliance against you,
The tribes of Edom and the Ishmaelites :
 the people of Moab and the Hagarites,
Gebal and Ammon and Amalek :
 Philistia, and the inhabitants of Tyre;
Asshur also is joined with them :
 and lends a friendly arm to the children of Lot.
Do to them as you did to Midian :
 as to Sisera and Jabin at the river of Kishon,
Who were destroyed at Endor :
 and became like dung for the earth.
Make their leaders as Oreb and Zeeb :
 and all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
Who said ‘Let us take possession :
 let us seize the pastures of God.’
Make them like thistledown, my God :
 or like chaff blown before the wind.
As fire consuming a thicket :
 or as flame that sets the hillsides ablaze,
Pursue them with your tempest :
 and terrify them with your storm-wind.
Cover their faces with shame, O Lord :
 that they may seek your name.
[Let them be disgraced and dismayed for ever :
 let them be confounded and perish,]
That they may know that you, whose name is the Lord :
 are alone the Most High over all the earth.
