Psalms 83

Coverdale(i) 1 Holde not thy tonge (o God) kepe not still sylece,, refrayne not yi self, o God. 2 For lo, thy enemies make a murmuringe, & they yt hate the, lift vp their heade. 3 They ymagin craftely agaynst thy people, & take councell agaynst thy secrete ones. 4 Come (saye they) let vs rote them out from amonge the people, that the name of Israel maye be put out of remebraunce. 5 For they haue cast their heades together with one consent, & are cofederate agaynst the. 6 The tabernacles of the Edomites & Ismaelites, the Moabites & Hagarenes. 7 Gebal, Ammon and Amalech: the Philistynes with them that dwell at Tyre. 8 Assur also is ioyned vnto the & helpe the children of Loth. 9 Sela. But do thou to them as vnto the Madianites, vnto Sisera and vnto Iabin by ye broke of Cyson. 10 Which perished at Endor, & became as the doge of ye earth. 11 Make their prynces like Oreb and Zeeb: Yee make all their prynces like as Zebea and Salmana. 12 Which saye: we wil haue the houses of God in possession? 13 O my God, make them like vnto a whele, and as the stuble before the wynde. 14 Like as a fyre that burneth vp the wodd, & as the flame that consumeth the mountaynes. 15 Persecute them euen so with thy tempest, & make them afrayed with thy storme. 16 Make their faces ashamed (o LORDE) yt they maye seke thy name. 17 Let the be cofounded & vexed euer more & more: Let the be put to shame & perish. 18 That they maye knowe, that thou art alone, that thy name is the LORDE, and that thou only art the most hyest ouer all the earth.
