1 O God, do not keep silent. Do not keep silent and do not be still, O God.
2 For, behold, your enemies are stirred up. Those who hate you have lifted up their heads.
3 They conspire with cunning against your people. They plot against your cherished ones.
4 They say: »Come and let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.«
5 For they have come to an agreement united in thought. They form an alliance against you.
6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;
7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assyria also is joined with them. They have helped the children of Lot.
9 Do to them as you did to Midian, as you did to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon
10 Who perished at Endor and became as dung for the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna.
12 For they said: »Let us take possession Of God's pasturelands.«
13 My God, make them like tumbleweed, like chaff before the wind.
14 Like the fire that consumes the forest, the flame that sets the mountains on fire,
15 pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm.
16 Fill their faces with confusion that they may seek your name, Jehovah.
17 Let them be disappointed and dismayed forever. Yes, let them be confounded and perish,
18 That they may know that you alone, whose name is Jehovah, are the Most High over all the earth.
