Psalm 83. Deus, quis similis?
HOLD not thy tongue, O God, keep not still silence: * refrain
not thyself, O God.
2 For lo, thine enemies make a murmuring; * and they that hate
thee have lift up their head.
3 They have imagined craftily against thy people, * and taken
counsel against thy secret ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us root them out, that they be
no more a people, * and that the name of Israel may be no more
5 For they have cast their heads together with one consent, *
and are confederate against thee:
6 The tabernacles of the Edomites, and the Ishmaelites; * the
Moabites, and Hagarenes;
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; * the Philistines, with them
that dwell at Tyre.
8 Assyria also is joined with them; * they have holpen the children
9 But do thou to them as unto the Midianites; * unto Sisera,
and unto Jabin at the brook of Kishon;
10 Who perished at Endor, * and became as the dung of the earth.
11 Make them and their princes like Oreb and Zeeb; * yea, make
all their princes like as Zebah and Zalmunna;
12 Who say, Let us take to ourselves * the houses of God in possession.
13 O my God, make them like unto the whirling dust, * and as
the stubble before the wind;
14 Like as the fire that burneth up the forest, * and as the
flame that consumeth the mountains;
15 Pursue them even so with thy tempest, * and make them afraid
with thy storm.
16 Make their faces ashamed, O LORD, * that they may seek thy
17 Let them be confounded and vexed ever more and more; * let
them be put to shame, and perish.
18 And they shall know that thou, whose Name is JEHOVAH, * art
only the Most Highest over all the earth.
