A Song [or] Psalm, of Asaph
1 O God! keep not silence with thyself; Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God!
2 For behold! thy enemies make a tumult: And those who hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 Against thy people they have craftily formed a design, And have consulted against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, |Come and let us cut them off from being a nation; |And let there be no remembrance of the name of Israel any more.|
5 For they have consulted with the heart together; Against thee a covenant they have made.
6 The tents of Edom, and of the Ishmaelites; Of Moab and of the Hagarenes.
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; The Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre.
8 Also Assur is associated with them: They have been an arm to the sons of Lot. Selah.
9 Do to them as to the Midianites, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook Kishon.
10 They perished at Endor; They became manure for the earth.
11 Make them, [even] their princes, like Oreb, and like Zeeb; And like Zebah, and like Zalmunna, all their princes.
12 Who have said, |Let us take in possession for ourselves |The habitations of God.|
13 O my God! make them like a whirling ball; Like stubble before the wind.
14 As fire burneth a forest, And as the flame kindleth the mountains,
15 So pursue them with thy tempest, And with thy whirlwind terrify them.
16 Fill their faces with shame; That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah!
17 Let them be ashamed, and terrified for ever; And let them be confounded, and perish.
18 And let them know that thou, even thou, art, thy name Jehovah, Thou alone the Most High over all the earth.
