Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; Lift up Yourself against the rage of my adversaries, And arouse Yourself for me; You have appointed judgment.
Arouse Yourself, why do You sleep, O Lord? Awake, do not reject us forever.
Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God! For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
Stir up Yourself, and awake to my right And to my cause, my God and my Lord.

A Psalm of David. Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me; Fight against those who fight against me.
Rise up, be our help, And redeem us for the sake of Your lovingkindness.
You, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, Awake to punish all the nations; Do not be gracious to any who are treacherous in iniquity. Selah.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David. A Song. Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered, And let those who hate Him flee before Him.
Like a dream when one awakes, O Lord, when aroused, You will despise their form.
Turn Your footsteps toward the perpetual ruins; The enemy has damaged everything within the sanctuary.
You caused judgment to be heard from heaven; The earth feared and was still
Then the Lord awoke as if from sleep, Like a warrior overcome by wine.
O Lord, God of vengeance, God of vengeance, shine forth!
The Lord performs righteous deeds And judgments for all who are oppressed.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.
The Lord arises to contend, And stands to judge the people.
Now, O Lord our God, deliver us from his hand that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You alone, Lord, are God.”
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; Awake as in the days of old, the generations of long ago. Was it not You who cut Rahab in pieces, Who pierced the dragon?
