A Song. A Psalm of Asaph.
1 Do anot keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!
And those who hate You have 2lifted up their head.
And consulted together cagainst Your sheltered ones.
4 They have said, “Come, and dlet us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
5 For they have consulted together with one 3consent;
They 4form a confederacy against You:
6 eThe tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
They have helped the children of Lot.
9 Deal with them as with fMidian,
As with gSisera,
As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon,
hWho became as refuse on the earth.
11 Make their nobles like iOreb and like Zeeb,
Yes, all their princes like jZebah and Zalmunna,
The pastures of God for a possession.”
13 kO my God, make them like the whirling dust,
lLike the chaff before the wind!
And as the flame msets the mountains on fire,
And frighten them with Your storm.
That they may seek Your name, O Lord.
17 Let them be 5confounded and dismayed forever;
Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,
Are pthe Most High over all the earth.
