Rise up, LORD! Save me, my God! You strike all my enemies on the cheek; You break the teeth of the wicked.
"Because of the oppression of the afflicted and the groaning of the poor, I will now rise up," says the LORD. "I will put in a safe place the one who longs for it."
[Davidic.] Oppose my opponents, LORD; fight those who fight me.
Wake up and rise to my defense, to my cause, my God and my LORD!
Rise up! Help us! Redeem us because of Your faithful love.
[For the choir director. A Davidic psalm. A song.] God arises. His enemies scatter, and those who hate Him flee from His presence.
As smoke is blown away, so You blow [them] away. As wax melts before the fire, so the wicked are destroyed before God.
The LORD rises to argue the case and stands to judge the people.
Make Your way to the everlasting ruins, to all that the enemy has destroyed in the sanctuary.
LORD, God of vengeance-- God of vengeance, appear.
Rise up, Judge of the earth; repay the proud what they deserve.
"Now I will rise up," says the LORD. "Now I will lift Myself up. Now I will be exalted.
Now, LORD our God, save us from his hand so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the LORD-- You alone."
Wake up, LORD! Why are You sleeping? Get up! Don't reject us forever!
You, LORD God of Hosts, God of Israel, rise up to punish all the nations; do not show grace to any wicked traitors. Selah
Like one waking from a dream, Lord, when arising, You will despise their image.
Then the Lord awoke as if from sleep, like a warrior from the effects of wine.
Wake up, wake up! Put on the strength of the LORD's power. Wake up as in days past, as in generations of long ago. Wasn't it You who hacked Rahab to pieces, who pierced the sea monster?
From heaven You pronounced judgment. The earth feared and grew quiet
when God rose up to judge and to save all the lowly of the earth. Selah
The LORD executes acts of righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
Since the LORD had decreed that Ahithophel's good advice be undermined in order to bring about Absalom's ruin, Absalom and all the men of Israel said, "The advice of Hushai the Archite is better than Ahithophel's advice."
