The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


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 their head.
    3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy cherished 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 mind: they are confederate against thee:
    6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagrites;
    7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, and Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
    8 Assyria also is joined with them: they have helped the children of Lot. Selah.
    9 Do unto them as thou didst unto Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon:
    10 Which perished at Endor: which became as dung for the earth.
    11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
    12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the pastures of God in possession.
    13 O my God, make them like whirling dust; as the chaff before the wind.
    14 As the fire burneth a forest, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
    15 So pursue 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 ashamed and dismayed for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
    18 That men may know that thou alone, whose name is the LORD, art the most high over all the earth.
