Prayer against a Hostile Alliance

1A song; a psalm of Asaph.

I

2God, do not be silent; God, be not still and unmoved! s Pss 10, 1; 44, 24; 109, 1 . 3See how your enemies rage; your foes proudly raise their heads. 4They conspire against your people, plot against those you protect. t Jer 11, 9 . 5They say, “Come, let us wipe out their nation; let Israel's name be mentioned no more!” 6They scheme with one mind, in league against you: u Ps 2, 2 . 7The tents of Ishmael and Edom,* the people of Moab and Hagar, v Nm 20, 23; 1 Chr 5, 10. 5, 19 . * 8Gebal,* Ammon, and Amalek, w Ex 17, 8 . Philistia and the inhabitants of Tyre. x Jos 13, 2 . 9Assyria, too, in league with them gives aid to the descendants of Lot.*   Selah

10Deal with them as with Midian;* as with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent Kishon, y Ex 2, 15; Is 9, 3; 10, 26 . 11Those destroyed at Endor, who became dung for the ground. z Jer 8, 2 . 12Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, 13Who made a plan together, “Let us seize the pastures of God.” 14My God, turn them into withered grass, into chaff flying before the wind. a Pss 1, 4; 35, 5; 58, 10; Is 5, 24; 10, 17; 17, 13; 29, 5; Ez 21, 3 . 15As a fire raging through a forest, a flame setting mountains ablaze, b Ps 50, 3 . 16Pursue them with your tempest; terrify them with your storm. c Jb 25, 32; 27, 21 . 17Cover their faces with shame, till they pay you homage, LORD. 18Let them be dismayed and shamed forever; let them perish in disgrace. 19Show them you alone are the LORD, the Most High over all the earth. d Ps 97, 9; Dt 4, 39; Dn 3, 45 .
