Psalm 83 (4:20)

by Jason Silver (played 10 times)

 

This is another Psalm which asks God to rise up and take notice, to not be silent, but to come to the rescue.

By the long list of nations included in these lyrics, it's evident that Israel was in a bad situation. Enemies were on every side, and there was little hope-- the only hope they could find was in their God, who as it turns out, is faithful and true! A perfect place in which to rest.

Are your enemies closing in around you? Trust in the Lord, God, maker of heaven and earth, and in his Son, Jesus.

Lyrics

O God, do not keep silence;
Do not hold your peace or be still,
O God! Even now your enemies are roaring;
Those who hate you, rearing up their heads.

O God, do not keep silence;
Do not hold your peace or be still,
O God! Even now your enemies are roaring;
Those who hate you, rearing up their heads.

They lay crafty plans against your people;
They consult together against those you protect.
They say, ‘Come, let us wipe them out as a nation;
‘Let the name of Israel be remembered no more.’

They conspire with one accord; against you—
Make a covenant with the tents of Edom and Moab
Ishmaelites, and Hagrites, Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia, Tyre; Assyria: they're the strong arm of Lot.

Selah

O God, do not keep silence;
Do not hold your peace or be still,
O God! Even now your enemies are roaring;
Those who hate you, rearing up their heads.

Do to them as you did to Midian,
As to Sisera and Jabin at Wadi Kishon,
Who perished at En-dor, who became dung for the ground.
Make their nobles like Oreb- like Oreb and like Zeeb,

All their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
Who said, ‘Let us take the land of God for our own.’
O my God, make them like whirling dust, like chaff to wind.
As the fire burns the forest, so pursue with your storms.

Instrumental

Fill their faces with shame,
So then they may seek your name, O Lord.
Let them ever be dismayed;
Let them perish in disgrace.
Let them know that you alone,
Whose name is Lord,
Are the Most High over all the earth.

O God, do not keep silence;
Do not hold your peace or be still,
O God! Even now your enemies are roaring;
Those who hate you, rearing up their heads.

O God, do not keep silence;
Do not hold your peace or be still,
O God! Even now your enemies are roaring;
Those who hate you, rearing up their heads.
