1 O God, do not remain silent;d
do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.
2 See how your enemies growl,e
how your foes rear their heads.f
3 With cunning they conspireg against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.h
so that Israel’s name is rememberedk no more.”
5 With one mind they plot together;l
they form an alliance against you—
6 the tents of Edomm and the Ishmaelites,
8 Even Assyriau has joined them
9 Do to them as you did to Midian,w
10 who perished at Endora
and became like dungb on the ground.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,c
all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,d
12 who said, “Let us take possessione
of the pasturelands of God.”
like chafff before the wind.
or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,g
15 so pursue them with your tempesth
and terrify them with your storm.i
16 Cover their faces with shame,j Lord,
so that they will seek your name.
17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed;k
may they perish in disgrace.l
18 Let them know that you, whose name is the Lordm—
