Brenton Septuagint Translation
God, Don't Keep Silent
1A Song of a Psalm for Asaph. O God, who shall be compared to thee? be not silent, neither be still, O God.
2For behold, thine enemies have made a noise; and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3Against thy people they have craftily imagined a device, and have taken counsel against thy saints.
4They have said, Come, and let us utterly destroy them out of the nation; and let the name of Israel be remembered no more at all.
5For they have taken counsel together with one consent: they have made a confederacy against thee;
6even the tents of the Idumeans, and the Ismaelites; Moab, and the Agarenes;
7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalec; the Philistines also, with them that dwell at Tyre.
8Yea, Assur too is come with them: they have become a help to the children of Lot. Pause.
9Do thou to them as to Madiam, and to Sisera; as to Jabin at the brook of Kison.
10They were utterly destroyed at Aendor: they became as dung for the earth.
11Make their princes as Oreb and Zeb, and Zebee and Salmana; even all their princes:
12who said, let us take to ourselves the altar of God as an inheritance.
13O my God, make them as a wheel; as stubble before the face of the wind.
14As fire which shall burn up a wood, as the flame may consume the mountains;
15so shalt thou persecute them with thy tempest, and trouble them in thine anger.
16Fill their faces with dishonour; so shall they seek thy name, O Lord.
17Let them be ashamed and troubled for evermore; yea, let them be confounded and destroyed.
18And let them know that thy name is Lord; that thou alone art Most High over all the earth.
