Psalm 83 (WEBP)

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

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 83 (YLT)

[1] O God, let there be no silence to Thee, Be not silent, nor be quiet, O God.
[2] For, lo, Thine enemies do roar, And those hating Thee have lifted up the head,
[3] Against Thy people they take crafty counsel, And consult against Thy hidden ones.
[4] They have said, ‘Come, And we cut them off from being a nation, And the name of Israel is not remembered any more.’
[5] For they consulted in heart together, Against Thee a covenant they make,
[6] Tents of Edom, and Ishmaelites, Moab, and the Hagarenes,
[7] Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with inhabitants of Tyre,
[8] Asshur also is joined with them, They have been an arm to sons of Lot. Selah.
[9] Do to them as to Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the stream Kishon.
[10] They were destroyed at Endor, They were dung for the ground!
[11] Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb, And as Zebah and Zalmunna all their princes,
[12] Who have said, ‘Let us occupy for ourselves The comely places of God.’
[13] O my God, make them as a rolling thing, As stubble before wind.
[14] As a fire doth burn a forest, And as a flame setteth hills on fire,
[15] So dost Thou pursue them with Thy whirlwind, And with Thy hurricane troublest them.
[16] Fill their faces with shame, And they seek Thy name, O Jehovah.
[17] They are ashamed and troubled for ever, Yea, they are confounded and lost.
[18] And they know that Thou- (Thy name is Jehovah-by Thyself,) Art the Most High over all the earth!
