  • 1Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
  • 2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
  • 3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
  • 4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
  • 5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
  • 6The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
  • 7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
  • 8Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
  • 9Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
  • 10Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
  • 11Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
  • 12Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
  • 13O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
  • 14As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
  • 15So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
  • 16Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
  • 17Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
  • 18That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
