Chapter 58

1

 

  {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?  

 

 


2

 

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

 

 


3

 

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

 

 


4

 

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

 

 


5

 

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

 

 


6

 

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

 

 


7

 

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

 

 


8

 

  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.  

 

 


9

 

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

 

 


10

 

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

 

 


11

 

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