1 O God, do not remain silent. Do not turn a deaf ear to me. Do not keep quiet, O God.
2 Look, your enemies are in an uproar. Those who hate you hold their heads high. 3 They make plans in secret against your people and plot together against those you treasure. 4 They say, “Let’s wipe out their nation so that the name of Israel will no longer be remembered.” 5 They agree completely on their plan. They form an alliance against you: 6 the tents from Edom and Ishmael, Moab and Hagar, 7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia, along with those who live in Tyre. 8 Even Assyria has joined them. They helped the descendants of Lot. Selah 9 Do to them what you did to Midian, to Sisera and Jabin at the Kishon River. 10 They were destroyed at Endor. They became manure to fertilize the ground. 11 Treat their influential people as you treated Oreb and Zeeb. Treat all their leaders like Zebah and Zalmunna. 12 They said, “Let’s take God’s pasturelands for ourselves.” 13 O my God, blow them away like tumbleweeds,[a] like husks in the wind. 14 Pursue them with your storms, and terrify them with your windstorms 15 the way fire burns a forest and flames set mountains on fire.[b] 16 Let their faces blush with shame, O Lord, so that they must look to you for help. 17 Let them be put to shame and terrified forever. Let them die in disgrace 18 so that they must acknowledge you. Your name is the Lord. You alone are the Most High God of the whole earth.
