Chapter 58

1

 

 To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David. 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.
