1 O God, do not remain silent;    do not turn a deaf ear,    do not stand aloof, O God.2 See how your enemies growl,    how your foes rear their heads.3 With cunning they conspire against your people;    they plot against those you cherish.4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,    so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” 5 With one mind they plot together;    they …
