Amplified Bible

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.

Salmos 83

Cántico. Salmo de Asaf.

1Oh Dios, no guardes silencio;
    no te quedes, oh Dios, callado e impasible.
Mira cómo se alborotan tus enemigos,
    cómo te desafían los que te odian.
Con astucia conspiran contra tu pueblo;
    conspiran contra aquellos a quienes tú estimas.
Y dicen: «¡Vengan, destruyamos su nación!
    ¡Que el nombre de Israel no vuelva a recordarse!»

Como un solo hombre se confabulan;
    han hecho un pacto contra ti:
los campamentos de Edom y de Ismael,
    los de Moab y de Agar,
Guebal,[a] Amón y Amalec,
    los de Filistea y los habitantes de Tiro.
¡Hasta Asiria se les ha unido;
    ha apoyado a los descendientes de Lot! Selah

Haz con ellos como hiciste con Madián,
    como hiciste con Sísara y Jabín en el río Quisón,
10 los cuales perecieron en Endor
    y quedaron en la tierra, como estiércol.
11 Haz con sus nobles
    como hiciste con Oreb y con Zeb;
haz con todos sus príncipes
    como hiciste con Zeba y con Zalmuna,
12 que decían: «Vamos a adueñarnos
    de los pastizales de Dios».

13 Hazlos rodar como zarzas, Dios mío;
    ¡como paja que se lleva el viento!
14 Y así como el fuego consume los bosques
    y las llamas incendian las montañas,
15 así persíguelos con tus tormentas
    y aterrorízalos con tus tempestades.
16 Señor, cúbreles el rostro de ignominia,
    para que busquen tu nombre.

17 Que sean siempre puestos en vergüenza;
    que perezcan humillados.
18 Que sepan que tú eres el Señor,
    que ese es tu nombre;
que sepan que solo tú eres el Altísimo
    sobre toda la tierra.
