Why does it have strange spelling?
1 A complaint to God of the enemies conspiracies. 9 A prayer against them that oppresse the Church.
[A song or Psalme of Asaph.] Keepe not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
For loe, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee, haue lift vp the head.
They haue taken craftie counsell against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
They haue said, Come, and let vs cut them off from being a nation: that the name of Israel may bee no more in remembrance.
For they haue consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee.5
The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites: of Moab, and the Hagarens.
Gebal and Ammon, and Amalek: the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre.
Assur also is ioyned with them: they haue holpen the children of Lot. Selah.8
Doe vnto them as vnto the Midianites: as to Sisera, as to Iabin, at the brooke of Kison:9
The desire of the godly.
Which perished at En-dor: they became as dung for the earth.
Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:11
Who sayd, Let vs take to our selues, the houses of God in possession.
O my God, make them like a wheele: as the stubble before the wind.
As the fire burneth a wood: and as the flame setteth the mountaines on fire:
So persecute them with thy tempest: and make them afraid with thy storme.
Fill their faces with shame: that they may seeke thy name, O Lord.
Let them be confounded and troubled for euer: yea let them be put to shame, and perish:
That men may knowe, that thou, whose name alone is IEHOVAH: art the most High ouer all the earth.
