Psalm 83

Psalm 83

A song. A psalm of Asaph.

God, don’t remain silent.
    Don’t refuse to listen.
    Do something, God.
See how your enemies are growling like dogs.
    See how they are rising up against you.
They make clever plans against your people.
    They make evil plans against those you love.
“Come,” they say. “Let’s destroy that whole nation.
    Then the name of Israel won’t be remembered anymore.”

All of them agree on the evil plans they have made.
    They join forces against you.
Their forces include the people of Edom,
    Ishmael, Moab and Hagar.
They also include the people of Byblos, Ammon, Amalek,
    Philistia and Tyre.
Even Assyria has joined them
    to give strength to the people of Moab and Ammon.

Do to them what you did to the people of Midian.
    Do to them what you did to Sisera and Jabin at the Kishon River.
10 Sisera and Jabin died near the town of Endor.
    Their bodies were left on the ground like human waste.
11 Do to the nobles of your enemies what you did to Oreb and Zeeb.
    Do to all their princes what you did to Zebah and Zalmunna.
12 They said, “Let’s take over
    the grasslands that belong to God.”

13 My God, make them like straw that the wind blows away.
    Make them like tumbleweed.
14 Destroy them as fire burns up a forest.
    Destroy them as a flame sets mountains on fire.
15 Chase them with your mighty winds.
    Terrify them with your storm.
16 Lord, put them to shame
    so that they will seek you.

17 May they always be filled with terror and shame.
    May they die in dishonor.
18 May you, the Lord, let your enemies know who you are.
    You alone are the Most High God over the whole earth.

诗篇 83

祈求上帝击败仇敌

亚萨的诗。

1上帝啊,求你不要缄默无声,
一言不发。
看啊,你的敌人在喧嚷,
恨你的人趾高气扬。
他们用诡计害你的子民,
他们一起谋害你所疼爱的人。
他们说:
“来吧,让我们铲除以色列,
让他们亡国,被人遗忘。”
他们串通一气,
勾结起来抵挡你。
他们是以东人、以实玛利人、摩押人、夏甲人、
迦巴勒人、亚扪人、亚玛力人、非利士人和泰尔人。
亚述也跟他们勾结,
要助罗得的后代一臂之力。(细拉)
求你对付他们,
如同对付米甸人和基顺河边的西西拉与耶宾。
10 他们在隐·多珥灭亡,
成了地上的粪土。
11 求你使他们的首领得到俄立和西伊伯那样的下场,
使他们的王侯得到西巴和撒慕拿那样的下场。
12 他们曾说:
“让我们夺取上帝的草场吧。”
13 我的上帝啊,求你把他们驱散,
如同狂风吹散尘土和碎秸。
14 烈火怎样烧毁森林,
火焰怎样吞没山岭,
15 求你也照样用狂风追赶他们,
用暴雨恐吓他们。
16 耶和华啊,
求你使他们满面羞愧,
这样他们才会来寻求你。
17 愿他们永远羞愧惊恐,
愿他们在耻辱中灭亡。
18 让他们知道你是耶和华,
唯有你是普天下的至高者。
