A Song [or] Psalm of Asaph.
Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace,4 and be not still,4 O God.
For, lo, thine enemies6 make a tumult:4 and they that hate18 thee have lifted up1 the head.
They have taken crafty55 counsel against thy people, and consulted101 against thy hidden ones.7
They have said,1 Come,3 and let us cut them off55 from [being] a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.11
For they have consulted8 together with one consent: they are4 confederate against thee:
The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants6 of Tyre;
Assur also is joined8 with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
Do3 unto them as [unto] the Midianites; as [to] Sisera, as [to] Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
[Which] perished8 at Endor: they became [as] dung for the earth.
Make3 their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
Who said,1 Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.4
O my God, make3 them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
As the fire burneth4 a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;17
So persecute4 them with thy tempest, and make them afraid17 with thy storm.
Fill16 their faces with shame; that they may seek17 thy name, O LORD.
Let them be confounded4 and troubled11 for ever; yea, let them be put to shame,4 and perish:4
That [men] may know4 that thou, whose name alone [is] JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth.
