Psalm 82

A Psalmic Ode for Asaph.

O God, who shall be likened unto Thee? Be Thou not silent, neither be still, O God. For behold, Thine enemies have made a noise, and they that hate Thee have lifted up their heads. Against Thy people have they taken wicked counsel, and have conspired against Thy saints. They said: Come, let us utterly destroy them that they may be no more a nation, and let the name of Israel be remembered no more. For they have conspired with oneness of mind together, against Thee have they made a covenant; even the tents of the Idumeans and the Ismaelites, Moab and the Hagarenes, Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, and foreigners with them that dwell at Tyre. Yea, for even Assur is come with them; they are become a help for the sons of Lot. Do unto them as Thou didst unto Madiam and Sisara, as unto Jabin at the brook of Kisson. They were utterly destroyed in Endor, they became as dung for the earth. Make their princes like Oreb and Zeb and Zebee and Salmana. Yea, all their princes who said: Let us take to ourselves for an inheritance the sanctuary of God. O my God, make them like a wheel, as stubble before the face of the wind, As fire which shall burn the forest, as a flame which shall consume the mountains. So shalt Thou pursue them with Thy tempest, and in Thy wrath shalt Thou trouble them. Fill their faces with dishonour, and they shall seek Thy name, O Lord. Let them be shamed and troubled unto ages of ages, and let them be confounded and destroyed. And let them know that Thy name is Lord; Thou alone art Most High over all the earth.
