Psalm 83. Deus, quis similis?

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Sixteenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. HOLD not thy tongue, O God, keep not still silence: *
    refrain not thyself, O God.
  2. For lo, thine enemies make a murmuring; *
    and they that hate thee have lift up their head.
  3. They have imagined craftily against thy people, *
    and taken counsel against thy secret ones.
  4. They have said, Come, and let us root them out, that they be no more a people, *
    and that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
  5. For they have cast their heads together with one consent, *
    and are confederate against thee:
  6. The tabernacles of the Edomites, and the Ishmaelites; *
    the Moabites, and Hagarenes;
  7. Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; *
    the Philistines, with them that dwell at Tyre.
  8. Assyria also is joined with them; *
    they have holpen the children of Lot.
  9. But do thou to them as unto the Midianites; *
    unto Sisera, and unto Jabin at the brook of Kishon;
  10. Who perished at Endor, *
    and became as the dung of the earth.
  11. Make them and their princes like Oreb and Zeeb; *
    yea, make all their princes like as Zebah and Zalmunna;
  12. Who say, Let us take to ourselves *
    the houses of God in possession.
  13. O my God, make them like unto the whirling dust, *
    and as the stubble before the wind;
  14. Like as the fire that burneth up the forest, *
    and as the flame that consumeth the mountains;
  15. Pursue them even so with thy tempest, *
    and make them afraid with thy storm.
  16. Make their faces ashamed, O Lord, *
    that they may seek thy Name.
  17. Let them be confounded and vexed ever more and more; *
    let them be put to shame, and perish.
  18. And they shall know that thou, whose Name is Jehovah, *
    art only the Most Highest over all the earth.
