1 O God, ado not remain quiet; bDo not be silent and, O God, do not be still. 2 For behold, Your enemies amake an uproar, And bthose who hate You have cexalted themselves. 3 They amake shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against bYour treasured ones. 4 They have said, "Come, and alet us wipe them out as a nation, That the bname of Israel be remembered no more." 5 For they have aconspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant: 6 The tents of aEdom and the bIshmaelites, cMoab and the dHagrites; 7 aGebal and bAmmon and cAmalek, dPhilistia with the inhabitants of eTyre; 8 aAssyria also has joined with them; They have become a help to the bchildren of Lot. Selah. 9 Deal with them aas with Midian, As bwith Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon, 10 Who were destroyed at En-dor, Who abecame as dung for the ground. 11 Make their nobles like aOreb and Zeeb And all their princes like bZebah and Zalmunna, 12 Who said, "aLet us possess for ourselves The bpastures of God." 13 O my God, make them like the awhirling dust, Like bchaff before the wind. 14 Like afire that burns the forest And like a flame that bsets the mountains on fire, 15 So pursue them awith Your tempest And terrify them with Your storm. 16 aFill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O Lord. 17 Let them be aashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish, 18 That they may aknow that bYou alone, whose name is the Lord, Are the cMost High over all the earth.
