A Song or Psalm of Asaph.

1Do not keep silence, O God; do not hold thy peace, and do not be still, O God. 2For, behold, thine enemies make a tumult, and those that hate thee have lifted up their head. 3They have taken prudent counsel in secret against thy people and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4They have said, Come and let us cut them off from being a people that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5Therefore they have consulted together with one consent; they are confederate against thee: 6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; of Moab and the Hagarenes; 7Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8Assur also is joined with them: they are an arm unto the sons of Lot. Selah.

9Do unto them as unto the Midianites, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison, 10who perished at Endor; they became as dung for the earth. 11Make them and their captains like Oreb and like Zeeb; all their princes as Zebah and as Zalmunna: 12Who have said, Let us inherit for ourselves the habitations of God. 13O my God, make them like a whirlwind, as the stubble before the wind. 14As the fire burns a wood and as the flame sets the mountains on fire 15so persecute them with thy tempest and make them afraid with thy whirlwind. 16Fill their faces with shame that they may seek thy name, O LORD. 17Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; let them be put to shame and perish 18That they may know that thou, whose name alone is LORD, art the most high over all the earth.
