HOLD not thy tongue, O God, keep not still silence : refrain not thyself, O God.
2 For lo, thine enemies make a murmuring : and they that hate thee have lift up their head.
3 They have imagined craftily against thy people : and taken counsel against thy secret ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us root them out, that they be no more a people : and that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5 For they have cast their heads together with one consent : and are confederate against thee;
6 The tabernacles of the Edomites, and the Ismaelites : the Moabites and Hagarenes;
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek : the Philistines, with them that dwell at Tyre.
8 Assur also is joined with them : and have holpen the children of Lot.
9 But do thou to them as unto the Madianites : unto Sisera, and unto Jabin at the brook of Kison;
10 Who perished at Endor : and became as the dung of the earth.
11 Make them and their princes like Oreb and Zeb : yea, make all their princes like as Zeba and Salmana;
12 Who say, Let us take to ourselves : the houses of God in possession.
13 O my God, make them like unto a wheel : and as the stubble before the wind;
14 Like as the fire that burneth up the wood : and as the flame that consumeth the mountains.
15 Persecute them even so with thy tempest : and make them afraid with thy storm.
16 Make their faces ashamed, O Lord : that they may seek thy Name.
17 Let them be confounded and vexed ever more and more : let them be put to shame, and perish.
18 And they shall know that thou, whose Name is Jehovah : art only the most Highest over all the earth.
