1: (A Song; a Psalm of Asaph.) O God, keep not silence; hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God: 2: For behold, thine enemies make a tumult; and they that hate thee lift up the head. 3: They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult against thy hidden ones: 4: They say, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, and let the name of Israel be mentioned no more. 5: For they have consulted together with one heart: they have made an alliance together against thee. 6: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagarites; 7: Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia, with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8: Asshur also is joined with them: they are an arm to the sons of Lot. Selah. 9: Do unto them as to Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the torrent of Kishon: 10: Who were destroyed at Endor; they became as dung for the ground. 11: Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb; and all their chiefs as Zebah and as Zalmunna. 12: For they have said, Let us take to ourselves God's dwelling-places in possession. 13: O my God, make them like a whirling thing, like stubble before the wind. 14: As fire burneth a forest, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire, 15: So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy whirlwind. 16: Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O Jehovah. 17: Let them be put to shame and be dismayed for ever, and 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.
