Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

82:1God standeth in the assembly of łGod, he judgeth among the gods.

82:2How long will ye judge unrighteously, and accept the person of the wicked? Selah.

82:3Judge the poor and the fatherless, do justice to the afflicted and the destitute;

82:4Rescue the poor and needy, deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

82:5They know not, neither do they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are moved.

82:6I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High;

82:7But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

82:8Arise, O God, judge the earth; for *thou* shalt inherit all the nations.

83:1O God, keep not silence; hold not thy peace, and be not still, O łGod:

83:2For behold, thine enemies make a tumult; and they that hate thee lift up the head.

83:3They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult against thy hidden ones:

83:4They say, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, and let the name of Israel be mentioned no more.

83:5For they have consulted together with one heart: they have made an alliance together against thee.

83:6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagarites;

83:7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia, with the inhabitants of Tyre;

83:8Asshur also is joined with them: they are an arm to the sons of Lot. Selah.

83:9Do unto them as to Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the torrent of Kishon:

83:10Who were destroyed at Endor; they became as dung for the ground.

83:11Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb; and all their chiefs as Zebah and as Zalmunna.

83:12For they have said, Let us take to ourselves God's dwelling-places in possession.

83:13O my God, make them like a whirling thing, like stubble before the wind.

83:14As fire burneth a forest, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire,

83:15So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy whirlwind.

83:16Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.

83:17Let them be put to shame and be dismayed for ever, and let them be confounded and perish:

83:18That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, art the Most High over all the earth.

84:1How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts!

84:2My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living łGod.

84:3Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she layeth her young, thine altars, O Jehovah of hosts, my King and my God.

84:4Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be constantly praising thee. Selah.

84:5Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee, -- they, in whose heart are the highways.

84:6Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a well-spring; yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.

84:7They go from strength to strength: each one will appear before God in Zion.

84:8Jehovah, God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

84:9Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.

84:10For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

84:11For Jehovah Elohim is a sun and shield: Jehovah will give grace and glory; no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

84:12Jehovah of hosts, blessed is the man that confideth in thee!
