(82-1) <A canticle of a psalm for Asaph.> (82-2) O God, who shall be like to thee? hold not thy peace, neither be thou still, O God.
(82-3) For lo, thy enemies have made a noise: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
(82-4) They have taken a malicious counsel against thy people, and have consulted against thy saints.
(82-5) 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.
(82-6) For they have contrived with one consent: they have made a covenant together against thee,
(82-7) The tabernacle of the Edomites, and the Ishmahelites: Moab, and the Agarens,
(82-8) Gebal, and Ammon and Amalec: the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre.
(82-9) Yea, and the Assyrian also is joined with them: they are come to the aid of the sons of Lot.
(82-10) Do to them as thou didst to Madian and to Sisara: as to Jabin at the brook of Cisson.
(82-11) Who perished at Endor: and became as dung for the earth.
(82-12) Make their princes like Oreb, and Zeb, and Zebee, and Salmana. All their princes,
(82-13) Who have said: Let us possess the sanctuary of God for an inheritance.
(82-14) O my God, make them like a wheel; and as stubble before the wind.
(82-15) As fire which burneth the wood: and as a flame burning mountains:
(82-16) So shalt thou pursue them with thy tempest: and shalt trouble them in thy wrath.
(82-17) Fill their faces with shame; and they shall seek thy name, O Lord.
(82-18) Let them be ashamed and troubled for ever and ever: and let them be confounded and perish.
(82-19) And let them know that the Lord is thy name: thou alone art the most High over all the earth.
