O God, do not keep silent;1 be not quiet, O God, be not still.
See how your enemies are astir,2 how your foes rear their heads.33
With cunning they conspire4 against your people; they plot against those you cherish.54
"Come," they say, "let us destroy6 them as a nation,7 that the name of Israel be remembered8 no more."
With one mind they plot together;9 they form an alliance against you--
the tents of Edom10 and the Ishmaelites, of Moab11 and the Hagrites,127
Gebal,a13 Ammon14 and Amalek,15 Philistia,16 with the people of Tyre.178
Even Assyria18 has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot.19 "Selah"
