Psalm 58

To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, Michtam of David.

1. Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation?

do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

2. Yea, in heart ye work wickedness;

ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

3. The wicked are estranged from the womb:

they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

4. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent:

they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

5. which will not hearken to the voice of charmers,

charming never so wisely.

6. Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth:

break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Lord.

7. Let them melt away as waters which run continually:

when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

8. As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away:

like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

9. Before your pots can feel the thorns,

he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

10. The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance:

he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

11. So that a man shall say,

Verily there is a reward for the righteous:

verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
