Psalm 83 Common English Bible (CEB)

Psalm 83

A song. A psalm of Asaph.

83 God, don’t be silent!
    Don’t be quiet or sit still, God,
    because—look!—your enemies are growling;
    those who hate you are acting arrogantly.
They concoct crafty plans against your own people;
    they plot against the people you favor.
“Come on,” they say, “let’s wipe them out as a nation!
    Let the name Israel be remembered no more!”
They plot with a single-minded heart;
    they make a covenant against you.
They are the clans of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
    Moab and the Hagrites,
    Gebal, Ammon, Amalek,
    Philistia along with the citizens of Tyre.
Assyria too has joined them—
    they are the strong arm for Lot’s children. Selah

Do to them what you did to Midian,
    to Sisera, and to Jabin at the Kishon River.
10 They were destroyed at Endor;
    they become fertilizer for the ground.
11 Make their officials like Oreb and Zeeb,
    all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna—
12     those who said, “Let’s take God’s pastures for ourselves.”
13 My God, make them like tumbleweeds,
    like chaff blown by wind.
14 Just like a fire consumes a forest,
    just like flames set mountains ablaze,
15         pursue them with your storm,
        terrify them with your hurricane.
16 Cover their faces with shame, Lord, so that they might seek your name.
17 Let them be shamed and terrified forever.
    Let them die in disgrace.
18     Let them know that you—
        your name is the Lord!—
    you alone are Most High over all the earth.
