1O God, do not rest. Do not keep silent, and do not be still, O God.
2For behold, your enemies roar. Yes, those who hate you have lifted up their head.
3They plot a crafty plan against your people. Yes, they conspire against those whom you protect.
4They said, “Come, and let’s wipe them out as a nation, that the name of Israel will no longer be remembered.”
5For they have conspired together with one heart. They make a covenant against you:
6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;
7Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8Moreover, Assyria has joined with them. They have become the arm to the children of Lot. Selah.
9Do to them as you did to Midian, as to Sisera, as to Jabin with the brook Kishon;
10who were destroyed at Endor, they became dung for the earth.
11Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb; yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12who said, “Let’s possess for ourselves the pastures of God.”
13O my God, make them like whirling dust, like stubble before the wind!
14Like a fire that burns a forest, and like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,
15so you will pursue them with your tempest, and you will terrify them with your storm.
16Fill their faces with dishonor, that they may seek your name, O Yahweh.
17Let them be put to shame and terrified forever. Yes, let them be ashamed and perish,
18that they may know that you alone, whose name is Yahweh, are the Most High over all the earth.
