A Psalm or Song of Asaph.
A Prayer For Judgment Against God's Enemies
1Keep not silence, O God: hold not your peace, and be not still, O God.
2For, lo, your enemies make a tumult: and they that hate you have lifted up the head.
3They have taken crafty counsel against your people, and consulted against your hidden ones.
4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5For they have consulted together with one consent: they make a covenant against you:
6The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagrites;
7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8Assyria also is joined with them: they have helped the children of Lot. Selah.
9Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kishon:
10Who perished at Endor: they became as refuse for the earth.
11Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
12Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
13O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
14As the fire burns wood, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire;
15So persecute them with your tempest, and make them afraid with your storm.
16Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek your name, O LORD.
17Let them be confounded and troubled forever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
18That men may know that you, whose name alone is the LORD, are the most high over all the earth.
