¶ O GOD, who is like unto thee?
Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God;
2
For, lo, thine enemies are raging and they that hate thee have lifted up the head against thy people.
3
They have taken crafty counsel, and consulted against thy chosen ones.
4
They have said, Come, let us destroy them from among the nations, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5
For they have agreed with one heart;
they have made alliance against thee:
6
The tabernacles of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
of Moab and the Gadarenes;
7
The people of the region of Ammon and Amalek;
the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8
The Assyrians have also joined with them;
they have helped the children of Lot.
9
¶ Do to them as to the Midianites;
as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the valley of Kishon;
10
Which perished at Endor;
they became as manure for the earth.
11
Destroy their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb;
yea, all their princes as Zebah and as Zalmunna;
12
For they said, Let us inherit for ourselves the city of God.
13
O God, make them like a turning wheel;
and like stubble before the wind.
14
As the fire burns a forest and as the flame sets the mountains on fire;
15
So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
16
Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
17
Let them be confounded and troubled for ever;
yea, let them be put to shame, and perish,
18
That men may know that thou, whose name alone is the LORD, art the most high over all the earth.
