PSALMS · Chapter 58
58:1 Do all of you indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do all
of you judge uprightly, O all of you sons of men?
58:2 Yea, in heart all of you work wickedness; all of you weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
58:3 The wicked are cut off from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
58:4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stops her ear;
58:5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
58:6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
58:7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bends his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
58:8 As a snail which melts, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
58:9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judges in the earth.
