    O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.

    For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves.

    They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones.

    They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.'

    For they have conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant:

    The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites;

    Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

    Assyria also has joined with them; They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.

    Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,

    Who were destroyed at En-dor, Who became as dung for the ground.

    Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

    Who said, " Let us possess for ourselves The pastures of God.'

    O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like chaff before the wind.

    Like fire that burns the forest And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,

    So pursue them with Your tempest And terrify them with Your storm.

    Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O LORD.

    Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish,

    That they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.

    pray for Israel. I understand the Jewish Rabbis called for the reading of this scripture by the jewish people shortly after a buried parchment of this scripture was discovered in Ireland.

    Albert Barnes:

    The occasion on which this was composed is not certainly known, and cannot now be ascertained. Grotius supposes that it relates to the time of David, and especially to the first war with the Syrians referred to in 2 Sam. 8, or to the second war with the Syrians referred to in 2 Sam. 10, and 1 Chr. 19. Kimchi, DeWette, and others, suppose that it relates to the time of Jehoshaphat, and to the war with the Ammonites and Moabites, referred to in 2 Chr. 20. Hengstenberg and Prof. Alexander concur in this opinion, and suppose that it was written on the same occasion as Psa_47:1-9; Psa_48:1-14; the first, composed and sung on the field of battle; the second, on the triumphant return to Jerusalem; the third - the one before us - in confident anticipation of victory. This is, perhaps, rather fanciful, and it certainly cannot be demonstrated that this is the correct opinion. It would seem, at least, to be hardly probable that a psalm would be composed and sung in a battlefield.

    The battlefield would seem to be a very appropriate place to compose and sing a psalm. :smilewinkgrin:
