For behold, Your enemies roar,

And those who hate You have lifted up their heads.

And [fn]conspire together against Your [fn]treasured ones.

That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”

For they have [fn]conspired together with one heart;

Against You they cut a covenant:

The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,

Moab and the Hagrites;

Do to them as to Midian,

Who were destroyed at En-dor,

Who were as dung for the ground.

Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb

And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves

The pastures of God.”

And like a flame that burns up the mountains,

So pursue them with Your tempest

And dismay them with Your storm.

Fill their faces with disgrace,

That they may seek Your name, O Yahweh.

Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever,

And let them be humiliated and perish,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 83:18 -

That they may know that You alone—Your name is Yahweh

Are the Most High over all the earth.
