1O my God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, be not still!
2For Your foes do make an uproar, rear their heads against Your will.
3They make plans against Your people; plot against those You adore;
4They say, “Come, let us destroy them; Israel’s name will be no more.”
5With one mind they plot together; form alliance against You;
6Tents of Edom and of Ishmael; Moab and the Hagrites, too.
7Gebal, Amalek and Ammon; Philistia and those of Tyre,
8And Assyr’a, too, has joined them to lend strength to Lot’s desire.
9Do to them as you fought Midian; let them find what Jabin found
10who, with Sisera at Kishon, died as dung on Endor’s ground.
11Make their nobles be like Oreb, and like Zeeb their leaders be;
All their princes be like Zebah and Zalmunna ruined be.
12All these said, “Let’s take possession; all God’s pastureland we’ll win.”
13Like the tumbleweed now make them; like the chaff before the wind.
14As the fire consumes the forest, or a flame sets hills on fire,
15So pursue them with Your tempest; terrify with Your storm’s ire.
16Fill their faces with dishonor, till they seek Your name and face;
17May they be ashamed, dismayed, Lord; may they perish in disgrace.
18Let them know that You alone, Lord – You whose name is full of worth;
You alone are God the Most High; You are Lord o’er all the earth.
