1 O God, keep not thou silence: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult together against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5 For they have consulted together with one consent; against thee do they make a covenant:
6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagarenes;
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre:
8 Assyria also is joined with them; they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah
9 Do thou unto them as unto Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon:
10 Which perished at En-dor; they became as dung for the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna:
12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God.
13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust; as stubble before the wind.
14 As the fire that burneth the forest, and as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire;
15 So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy storm.
16 Fill their faces with confusion; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
17 Let them be ashamed and dismayed for ever; yea, let them be confounded and perish:
18 That they may know that thou alone, whose name is JEHOVAH, art the Most High over all the earth.
