The Psalms

A Prayer for the Destruction of Israel's Enemies
A Song or Psalm of Asaph.

1  Keep not thou silence, O God:
hold not thy peace,
and be not still, O God.
2  For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult:
and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3  They have taken crafty counsel against thy people,
and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;
that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5  For they have consulted together with one consent:
they are confederate against thee:
6  the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ish'maelites;
of Moab, and the Hag'arenes;
7  Gebal, and Ammon, and Am'alek;
the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8  Assur also is joined with them:
they have helped the children of Lot.
9  Do unto them as unto the Mid'i-anites; Judg. 7.1-23
as to Sis'era, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: Judg. 4.6-22
10  which perished at En–dor:
they became as dung for the earth.
11  Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Ze'eb: Judg. 7.25
yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmun'na: Judg. 8.12
12  who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
13  O my God, make them like a wheel;
as the stubble before the wind.
14  As the fire burneth a wood,
and as the flame setteth 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 JEHOVAH,
art the Most High over all the earth.
