Tehillim / Psalm 83
A song. A Psalm by Asaf.
1 God, don't keep silent.
Don't keep silent,
And don't be still, God.
2 For, behold, your enemies
are stirred up.
Those who hate you have lifted up their heads.
3 They conspire with cunning
against your people.
They plot against your cherished ones.
4 "Come," they say, "and
let's destroy them as a nation,
That the name of Yisra'el may be remembered no more."
5 For they have
conspired together with one mind.
They form an alliance against you.
6 The tents of
Mo'av, and the Hagrim;
7 Geval, `Ammon, and `Amalek;
Peleshet with the inhabitants of Tzor;
8 Ashshur also is joined with them.
They have helped the children of
9 Do to them as you did to
As to Sisera, as to Yavin, at the river Kishon;
10 Who perished at `En-Dor,
Who became as dung for the eretz.
11 Make their nobles like `Orev and Ze'ev;
Yes, all their princes like Zevach and Tzalmunnah;
12 Who said, "Let us take possession
Of God's pasturelands."
13 My God, make them like tumbleweed;
Like chaff before the wind.
14 As the fire that burns the forest,
As the flame that sets the mountains on fire,
15 So pursue them with your tempest,
And terrify them with your storm.
16 Fill their faces with
That they may seek your name, YHWH.
17 Let them be disappointed and dismayed forever.
18 That they may know that you alone, whose
name is the YHWH,
Are Ha`Elyon over all the eretz.
"Comfort, yes, comfort My people!" Says your God.
that her iniquity is pardoned; for she has received from the YHWH'S hand
double for all her sins." Isaiah 40:1- 2
I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness,
and the Salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth." Isaiah 62:1
