Chapter 58


 {To the chief Musician. 'Destroy not.' Of David. Michtam.} Is righteousness indeed silent? Do ye speak it? Do ye judge with equity, ye sons of men?


 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.


 The wicked go astray from the womb; they err as soon as they are born, speaking lies.


 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: [they are] like the deaf adder which stoppeth her ear;


 Which doth not hearken to the voice of enchanters, of one charming ever so wisely.


 O God, break their teeth in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Jehovah.


 Let them melt away as waters that flow off; when he aimeth his arrows, let them be as blunted:


 Let them be as a snail that melteth as it passeth away; [like] the untimely birth of a woman, let them not see the sun.


 Before your pots feel the thorns, green or burning, -- they shall be whirled away.


 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his footsteps in the blood of the wicked:


 And men shall say, Verily there is fruit for the righteous; verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth.
