A song, or Psalme committed to Asaph.
1
Keepe not thou silence, O God: bee not still, and cease not, O God.
2
For lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee, haue lifted vp the head.
3
They haue taken craftie counsell against thy people, and haue consulted against thy secret ones.
4
They haue said, Come and let vs cut them off from being a nation: and let the name of Israel be no more in remembrance.
5
For they haue consulted together in heart, and haue made a league against thee:
6
The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Agarims:
7
Gebal and Ammon, and Amalech, the Philistims with the inhabitants of Tyrus:
8
Asshur also is ioyned with them: they haue bene an arme to the children of Lot.
Selah.
9
Doe thou to them as vnto the Midianites: as to Sisera and as to Iabin at the riuer of Kishon.
10
They perished at En-dor, and were dung for the earth.
11
Make them, euen their princes like Oreb and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes like Zebah and like Zalmuna.
12
Which haue said, Let vs take for our possession the habitations of God.
13
O my God, make them like vnto a wheele, and as the stubble before the winde.
14
As the fire burneth the forest, and as the flame setteth the mountaines on fire:
15
So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraide with thy storme.
16
Fill their faces with shame, that they may seeke thy Name, O Lord.
17
Let them be confounded and troubled for euer: yea, let them be put to shame and perish,
18
That they may knowe that thou, which art called Iehouah, art alone, euen the most High ouer all the earth.
