83:1 <> God, don't keep silent. Don't keep silent, And don't be still, God.
83:2 For, behold, your enemies are stirred up. Those who hate you have lifted up their heads.
83:3 They conspire with cunning against your people. They plot against your cherished ones.
83:4 "Come," they say, "and let's destroy them as a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more."
83:5 For they have conspired together with one mind. They form an alliance against you.
83:6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;
83:7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
83:8 Assyria also is joined with them. They have helped the children of Lot. Selah.
83:9 Do to them as you did to Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;
83:10 Who perished at Endor, Who became as dung for the earth.
83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;
83:12 Who said, "Let us take possession Of God's pasturelands."
83:13 My God, make them like tumbleweed; Like chaff before the wind.
83:14 As the fire that burns the forest, As the flame that sets the mountains on fire,
83:15 So pursue them with your tempest, And terrify them with your storm.
83:16 Fill their faces with confusion, That they may seek your name, Yahweh.
83:17 Let them be disappointed and dismayed forever. Yes, let them be confounded and perish;
83:18 That they may know that you alone, whose name is Yahweh, Are the Most High over all the earth.
