Fill their faces with shame

Psalm 83 ►

1O Elohim, do not remain silent! Do not be speechless, And do not be still, O Ěl!

2For look, Your enemies make an uproar, And those hating You have lifted up their head.

3They craftily plot against Your people, And conspire against Your treasured ones.

4They have said, “Come, And let us wipe them out as a nation, And let the name of Yisra’ĕl be remembered no more.”

5For they have conspired together with one heart; They have made a covenant against You –

6The tents of Eḏom and the Yishma‛ĕlites, Mo’aḇ and the Hag̅arites,

7Geḇal, and Ammon, and Amalĕq, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tsor,

8Ashshur also has joined with them, They have helped the children of Lot. Selah.

9Do to them as to Miḏyan, As to Sisera, As to Yaḇin at the wadi Qishon,

10Who perished at Ěndor, Who became as dung for the ground.

11Make their nobles like Orĕḇ and like Ze’ĕḇ, And all their princes like Zeḇaḥ and Tsalmunna,

12Who have said, “Let us take possession of the pastures of Elohim For ourselves.”

13O my Elohim, make them as whirling dust, As stubble before the wind!

14As a fire consumes a forest, And as a flame sets mountains on fire,

15So pursue them with Your whirlwind, And frighten them with Your storm.

16Fill their faces with shame, And let them seek Your Name, O יהוה.

17Let them be ashamed and alarmed forever; And let them become abashed and perish,

18And let them know that You, Whose Name is יהוה, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
