Deus, quis similis?
1 Hold not your tongue, O God; keep not silent,*
but rouse yourself, O God.
2 For behold, your enemies murmur,*
and those who hate you have lifted up their head.
3 They have conspired secretly against your people*
and taken counsel against your cherished ones.
4 They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out, that they may be no more a people,*
and that the name of Israel may be remembered no more."
5 For they have brought their heads together with one consent*
and are aligned against you:
6 The tents of the Edomites and the Ishmaelites,*
the Moabites and Hagarenes,
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek,*
the Philistines with those who dwell at Tyre.
8 Assyria also has joined with them,*
and has helped the children of Lot.
9 But do to them as you did to the Midianites,*
to Sisera and to Jabin at the brook of Kishon,
10 Who perished at Endor*
and became as dung on the earth.
11 Make their princes like Oreb and Zeëb;*
indeed, make all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 Who said, "Let us take for ourselves*
the pastures of God as our possession."
13 O my God, make them like whirling dust*
and like stubble before the wind,
14 Like the fire that burns up the woods*
and like the flame that consumes the mountains.
15 Pursue them even with your tempest,*
and make them afraid with your storm.
16 Cover their faces with shame, O Lord,*
that they may seek your Name.
17 Let them be disgraced and dismayed ever more and more;*
let them be put to shame and perish.
18 And they shall know that you, whose Name is the Lord,*
are alone the Most High over all the earth.
