A psalm or song of Asaph,
1 O GOD, do not thou silence keep:
o do not thou refrain
thy self from speaking, and o God.
do not thou dumb remain.
2 For lo, thine enemies that be
do rage tumultuously:
and they that haters be of thee
have lift the head on high.
3 Against those that thy people be
they crafty counsel take;
also against thy hidden ones
they consultation make.
4 They said, lest they a nation be,
let's cut them down therefore,
that in remembrance Isr’el’s name
may not be any more.
5 For they together taken have
counsel with one consent,
and in confederation
against thee they are bent.
6 The tabernacles of Edom
and of the Ishmaelites:
the people of the Hagarenes
and of the Moabites.
7 The men of Gebal, with Ammon,
and Amalek conspire,
the Philistims, with them that be
inhabitants of Tyre.
8 Assyria moreover is
conjoined unto them:
and help they have administered
unto Lots children.
9 As thou didst to the Midianites,
so to them be it done:
as unto Sisera and Jabin
at the Brook of Kison
10 Who near to Endor suddenly
were quite discomfited:
who also did become as dung
that on the earth is spread.
11 Like unto Oreb, and like Zeeb
make thou their Nobles fall,
yea, as Zebah and Zalmunna
make thou their Princes all.
12 Who said, for our possession
Gods houses let us take.
13 My God, thou like a wheel, like straw
before the wind them make.
14 As fire doth burn a wood, and as
the flame sets hills on fire:
15 So with thy tempest them pursue,
and fright them in thine ire.
16 Doe thou their faces all fill full
of ignominious shame:
that so they may o Lord, be made
to seek after thy name.
17 Confounded let them ever be,
and terribly troubled:
yea, let them be put unto shame,
and be extinguished.
18 That men may know; that thou whose name
JEHOVAH is only,
art over all the earth throughout
advanced the most high.
