1 Keep not thou silence, O God: be not still,

and cease not, O God.

2 For lo, thine enemies make a tumult, and

they that hate thee, have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy

people, and have consulted against thy

secret ones.

4 They have said, Come and let us cut them off

from being a nation: and let the name of Israel be

no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together in heart, and

have made a league against thee:

6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites,

Moab and the Hagarites:

7 Gebal and Ammon, and Amalek, the Philistines,

with the inhabitants of Tyre.

8 Assyria also is joined with them: they have

been an arm to the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do thou to them as unto the Midianites: as

to Sisera and as to Jabin at the river of Kishon.

10 They perished at En Dor, and were dung for

the earth.

11 Make them, even their princes, like Oreb and

like Zeeb: yea, all their princes like Zebah and like

Zalmunna,

12 Which have said, Let us take for our possession

the habitations of God.

13 O my God, make them like unto a wheel, and

as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth the forest, and as the flame

setteth the mountains on fire:

15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make

them afraid with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek

thy Name, O Lord.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled forever:

yea, let them be put to shame, and perish,

18 That they may know that thou, which art

calleth Jehovah, art alone, even the most High over

all the earth.
