Psalms 83:3-8


83:3 They carefully plot 1  against your people,

and make plans to harm 2  the ones you cherish. 3 

83:4 They say, “Come on, let’s annihilate them so they are no longer a nation! 4 

Then the name of Israel will be remembered no more.”

83:5 Yes, 5  they devise a unified strategy; 6 

they form an alliance 7  against you.

83:6 It includes 8  the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,

Moab and the Hagrites, 9 

83:7 Gebal, 10  Ammon, and Amalek,

Philistia and the inhabitants of Tyre. 11 

83:8 Even Assyria has allied with them,

lending its strength to the descendants of Lot. 12  (Selah)
