God Implored to Confound His Enemies.

1 O God, 1do not remain quiet; 2Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still. 2 For behold, Your enemies 3make an uproar, And 4those who hate You have a5exalted themselves. 3 They 6make shrewd plans against Your people, And bconspire together against 7Your ctreasured ones. 4 They have said, "Come, and 8let us wipe them out das a nation, That the 9name of Israel be remembered no more." 5 For they have e10conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant: 6 The tents of 11Edom and the 12Ishmaelites, 13Moab and the 14Hagrites; 7 15Gebal and 16Ammon and 17Amalek, 18Philistia with the inhabitants of 19Tyre; 8 20Assyria also has joined with them; They have become fa help to the 21children of Lot. gSelah. 9 Deal with them 22as with Midian, As 23with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon, 10 Who were destroyed at En-dor, Who 24became as dung for the ground. 11 Make their nobles like 25Oreb and Zeeb And all their princes like 26Zebah and Zalmunna, 12 Who said, "27Let us possess for ourselves The 28pastures of God." 13 O my God, make them like the h29whirling dust, Like 30chaff before the wind. 14 Like 31fire that burns the forest And like a flame that 32sets the mountains on fire, 15 So pursue them 33with Your tempest And terrify them with Your storm. 16 34Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O LORD. 17 Let them be 35ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish, 18 That they may 36know that 37You alone, whose name is the LORD, Are the 38Most High over all the earth.
