You, LORD God of Hosts, God of Israel, rise up to punish all the nations; do not show grace to any wicked traitors. Selah
They return at evening, snarling like dogs and prowling around the city.
Look, they spew from their mouths-- sharp words from their lips. "For who," [they say,] "will hear?"
But You laugh at them, LORD; You ridicule all the nations.
I will keep watch for You, my strength, because God is my stronghold.
My faithful God will come to meet me; God will let me look down on my adversaries.
Do not kill them; otherwise, my people will forget. By Your power, make them homeless wanderers and bring them down, Lord, our shield.
The sin of their mouths is the word of their lips, so let them be caught in their pride. They utter curses and lies.
Consume [them] in rage; consume [them] until they are gone. Then they will know to the ends of the earth that God rules over Jacob. Selah
