83:1 A song, [or] Psalm of Asaph. Keep not thou silence, O God:
hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
83:2 For lo, thy enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee
have lifted up the head.
83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and
consulted against thy hidden ones.
83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from [being]
a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in
83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are
confederate against thee,
83:6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and
83:7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the

83:9 Do to them as [to] the Midianites; as [to] Sisera, as [to]

83:15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid
with thy storm.
83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name,
83:17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yes, let
them be put to shame, and perish:
83:18 That [men] may know that thou, whose name alone [is]
JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth.
