Psalms - Chapter 83 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Song. A Psalm of Asaph. Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God!
  • 2. For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
  • 3. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
  • 4. They have said, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more."
  • 5. For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You:
  • 6. The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites;
  • 7. Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
  • 8. Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah
  • 9. Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera, As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon,
  • 10. Who perished at En Dor, Who became as refuse on the earth.
  • 11. Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
  • 12. Who said, "Let us take for ourselves The pastures of God for a possession."
  • 13. O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like the chaff before the wind!
  • 14. As the fire burns the woods, And as the flame sets the mountains on fire,
  • 15. So pursue them with Your tempest, And frighten them with Your storm.
  • 16. Fill their faces with shame, That they may seek Your name, O Lord.
  • 17. Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,
  • 18. That they may know that You, whose name alone is the Lord, Are the Most High over all the earth.
