Psalm 83

God Implored to Confound His Enemies.

A Song. A Psalm of Asaph.

1Do not keep silent, O God;
Do not hold Your peace or be still, O God.

For behold, Your enemies are in tumult,
And those who hate You have raised their heads [in hatred of You].

They concoct crafty schemes against Your people,
And conspire together against Your hidden and precious ones.

They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation;
Let the name of Israel be remembered no more.”

For they have conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant—

The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Of Moab and the Hagrites,

Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre.

Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot [the Ammonites and the Moabites] and have been an arm [of strength] to them. Selah.


Deal with them as [You did] with Midian,
As with Sisera and Jabin at the brook of Kishon,
10 
Who were destroyed at En-dor,
Who became like dung for the earth.
11 
Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb
And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 
Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves
The pastures of God.”

13 
O my God, make them like [a]whirling dust,
Like chaff before the wind [worthless and without substance].
14 
Like fire consumes the forest,
And like the flame sets the mountains on fire,
15 
So pursue them with Your tempest
And terrify them with [the violence of] Your storm.
16 
Fill their faces with shame and disgrace,
That they may [persistently] seek Your name, O Lord.
17 
Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever;
Yes, let them be humiliated and perish,
18 
That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord,
Are the Most High over all the earth.

詩篇 83

祈求上帝擊敗仇敵

亞薩的詩。

1上帝啊,求你不要緘默無聲,
一言不發。
看啊,你的敵人在喧嚷,
恨你的人趾高氣揚。
他們用詭計害你的子民,
他們一起謀害你所疼愛的人。
他們說:
「來吧,讓我們剷除以色列,
讓他們亡國,被人遺忘。」
他們串通一氣,
勾結起來抵擋你。
他們是以東人、以實瑪利人、摩押人、夏甲人、
迦巴勒人、亞捫人、亞瑪力人、非利士人和泰爾人。
亞述也跟他們勾結,
要助羅得的後代一臂之力。(細拉)
求你對付他們,
如同對付米甸人和基順河邊的西西拉與耶賓。
10 他們在隱·多珥滅亡,
成了地上的糞土。
11 求你使他們的首領得到俄立和西伊伯那樣的下場,
使他們的王侯得到西巴和撒慕拿那樣的下場。
12 他們曾說:
「讓我們奪取上帝的草場吧。」
13 我的上帝啊,求你把他們驅散,
如同狂風吹散塵土和碎稭。
14 烈火怎樣燒毀森林,
火焰怎樣吞沒山嶺,
15 求你也照樣用狂風追趕他們,
用暴雨恐嚇他們。
16 耶和華啊,
求你使他們滿面羞愧,
這樣他們才會來尋求你。
17 願他們永遠羞愧驚恐,
願他們在恥辱中滅亡。
18 讓他們知道你是耶和華,
唯有你是普天下的至高者。
