Deus, quis similis?

Hold not thy tongue, O God, keep | not still silence:

* refrain | not thyself, O God.

2 For lo, thine enemies | make a murmuring;

* and they that hate thee have | lift up their head.

3 They have imagined craftily a- | -gainst thy people,

* and taken counsel a- | -gainst thy secret ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us root them out, that they be no | more a people,

* and that the name of Israel may be no | more in remembrance.

5 For they have cast their heads together with | one consent,

* and are con- | -federate against thee:

6 The tabernacles of the Edomites, | and the Ishmaelites;

* the Moab- | -ites, and Hagarenes;

7 Gebal, and | Ammon•, and Amalek;

* the Philistines, with | them that dwell at Tyre.

8 Assyria also is | joined with them;

* they have | holpen• the children of Lot.

9 But do thou to them as | unto• the Midianites;

* unto Sisera, and unto Jabin | at the brook of Kishon;

10 Who perished | at Endor,

* and became as the | dung of the earth.

11 Make them and their princes like | Oreb• and Zeeb;

* yea, make all their princes like as | Zebah and Zalmunna;

12 Who say, Let us take | to ourselves

* the houses of | God in possession.

13 O my God, make them like unto the | whirling dust,

* and as the | stubble• before the wind;

14 Like as the fire that burneth | up the forest,

* and as the flame | that con•sumeth• the mountains;

15 Pursue them even so | with thy tempest,

* and make them a- | -fraid with thy storm.

16 Make their faces a- | -shamed, O LORD,

* that | they may seek thy Name.

17 Let them be confounded and vexed ever | more and more;

* let them be | put to shame, and perish.

18 And they shall know that thou, whose Name | is JEHOVAH,

* art only the Most Highest | over all the earth.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
