From the mouths of babes and infants
you have established strength
because of your adversaries,
to silence the enemy and the avenger. Bible

“to silence the enemy.” The Hebrew is more literally, “to cause to cease” an enemy. This can be to “silence” them, or perhaps it even has eschatological implications pertaining to Judgment Day, and “put an end to” (NET) is also part of the meaning. Although the meaning is not explained, it likely has to do with innocent and honest people praising and supporting God against His enemies, who have a demonic agenda.
