[A song or Psalme of Asaph.]
1
Keepe not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2
For loe, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee, haue lift vp the head.
3
They haue taken craftie counsell against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4
They haue said, Come, and let vs cut them off from being a nation: that the name of Israel may bee no more in remembrance.
5
For they haue consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee.
6
The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites: of Moab, and the Hagarens.
7
Gebal and Ammon, and Amalek: the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre.
8
Assur also is ioyned with them: they haue holpen the children of Lot.
Selah.
9
Doe vnto them as vnto the Midianites: as to Sisera, as to Iabin, at the brooke of Kison:
10
Which perished at En-dor: they became as dung for the earth.
11
Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
12
Who sayd, Let vs take to our selues, the houses of God in possession.
13
O my God, make them like a wheele: as the stubble before the wind.
14
As the fire burneth a wood: and as the flame setteth the mountaines on fire:
15
So persecute them with thy tempest: and make them afraid 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 men may knowe, that thou, whose name alone is IEHOVAH: art the most High ouer all the earth.
