Psalm 83. Deus, quis similis?

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Sixteenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O God, do not be silent; *
    do not keep still nor hold your peace, O God;
  2. For your enemies are in tumult, *
    and those who hate you have lifted up their heads.
  3. They take secret counsel against your people *
    and plot against those whom you protect.
  4. They have said, "Come, let us wipe them out from among the nations; *
    let the name of Israel be remembered no more."
  5. They have conspired together; *
    they have made an alliance against you:
  6. The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; *
    the Moabites and the Hagarenes;
  7. Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; *
    the Philistines and those who dwell in Tyre.
  8. The Assyrians also have joined them, *
    and have come to help the people of Lot.
  9. Do to them as you did to Midian, *
    to Sisera, and to Jabin at the river of Kishon:
  10. They were destroyed at Endor; *
    they became like dung upon the ground.
  11. Make their leaders like Oreb and Zeeb, *
    and all their commanders like Zebah and Zalmunna,
  12. Who said, "Let us take for ourselves *
    the fields of God as our possession."
  13. O my God, make them like whirling dust *
    and like chaff before the wind;
  14. Like fire that burns down a forest, *
    like the flame that sets mountains ablaze.
  15. Drive them with your tempest *
    and terrify them with your storm;
  16. Cover their faces with shame, O Lord, that they may seek your Name.
  17. Let them be disgraced and terrified for ever; let them be put to confusion and perish.
  18. Let them know that you, whose Name is Yahweh, *
    you alone are the Most High over all the earth.
