Psalm 83

Psalm 83

A song. A psalm of Asaph.

O God, do not be silent!
    Do not be deaf.
    Do not be quiet, O God.
Don’t you hear the uproar of your enemies?
    Don’t you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up?
They devise crafty schemes against your people;
    they conspire against your precious ones.
“Come,” they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation.
    We will destroy the very memory of its existence.”
Yes, this was their unanimous decision.
    They signed a treaty as allies against you—
these Edomites and Ishmaelites;
    Moabites and Hagrites;
Gebalites, Ammonites, and Amalekites;
    and people from Philistia and Tyre.
Assyria has joined them, too,
    and is allied with the descendants of Lot. Interlude

Do to them as you did to the Midianites
    and as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the Kishon River.
10 They were destroyed at Endor,
    and their decaying corpses fertilized the soil.
11 Let their mighty nobles die as Oreb and Zeeb did.
    Let all their princes die like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 for they said, “Let us seize for our own use
    these pasturelands of God!”
13 O my God, scatter them like tumbleweed,
    like chaff before the wind!
14 As a fire burns a forest
    and as a flame sets mountains ablaze,
15 chase them with your fierce storm;
    terrify them with your tempest.
16 Utterly disgrace them
    until they submit to your name, O Lord.
17 Let them be ashamed and terrified forever.
    Let them die in disgrace.
18 Then they will learn that you alone are called the Lord,
    that you alone are the Most High,
    supreme over all the 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。
