Psalms 83 (Our Enemies Formed a Strange Alliance)

Psalms Chapter 83

Our Enemies Formed a Strange Alliance
Listen to "Psalms 83 (Our enemies have formed a strange alliance against us)" on Spreaker.

A Song of a Psalm for Asaph.

1 O God, who shall be compared to thee? be not silent, neither be still, O God.

2 For behold, thine enemies have made a noise; and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 Against thy people they have craftily imagined a device, and have taken counsel against thy saints. 4 They have said, Come, and let us utterly destroy them out of the nation; and let the name of Israel be remembered no more at all. 5 For they have taken counsel together with one consent: they have made a confederacy against thee; 6 even the tents of the Idumeans, and the Ismaelites; Moab, and the Agarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalec; the Philistines also, with them that dwell at Tyre. 8 Yea, Assur too is come with them: they have become a help to the children of Lot. Pause.

9 Do thou to them as to Madiam, and to Sisera; as to Jabin at the brook of Kison. 10 They were utterly destroyed at Aendor: they became as dung for the earth. 11 Make their princes as Oreb and Zeb, and Zebee and Salmana; even all their princes: 12 who said, Let us take to ourselves the altar of God as an inheritance. 13 O my God, make them as a wheel; as stubble before the face of the wind. 14 As fire which shall burn up a wood, as the flame may consume the mountains; 15 so shalt thou persecute them with thy temptest, and trouble them in thine anger. 16 Fill their faces with dishonour; so shall they seek thy name, O Lord. 17 Let them be ashamed and troubled forevermore; yea, let them be confounded and destroyed. 18 And let them know that thy name is Lord; that thou alone art Most High over all the earth.
