Chapter 82

1

 A canticle of a psalm for Asaph. 

2

 O God, who shall be like to thee? hold not thy peace, neither be thou still, O God. 

3

 For lo, thy enemies have made a noise: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 

4

 They have taken a malicious counsel against thy people, and have consulted against thy saints. 

5

 They have said: Come and let us destroy them, so that they be not a nation: and let the name of Israel be remembered no more. 

6

 For they have contrived with one consent: they have made a covenant together against thee, 

7

 the tabernacles of the Edomites, and the Ismahelites: Moab, and the Agarens, 

8

 Gebal, and Ammon and Amalec: the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre. 

9

 Yea, and the Assyrian also is joined with them: they are come to the aid of the sons of Lot. 

10

 Do to them as thou didst to Madian and to Sisara: as to Jabin at the brook of Cisson. 

11

 Who perished at Endor: and became as dung for the earth. 

12

 Make their princes like Oreb, and Zeb, and Zebee, and Salmana. All their princes, 

13

 who have said: Let us possess the sanctuary of God for an inheritance. 

14

 O my God, make them like a wheel; and as stubble before the wind. 

15

 As fire which burneth the wood: and as a flame burning mountains: 

16

 So shalt thou pursue them with thy tempest: and shalt trouble them in thy wrath. 

17

 Fill their faces with shame; and they shall seek thy name, O Lord. 

18

 Let them be ashamed and troubled for ever and ever: and let them be confounded and perish. 

19

 And let them know that the Lord is thy name: thou alone art the most High over all the earth.
