Psalms - Chapter 58

Psalms Chapters

1 [For the choirmaster Tune: 'Do not destroy' Of David In a quiet voice] Divine as you are, do you truly give upright verdicts? do you judge fairly the children of Adam?

2 No! You devise injustice in your hearts, and with your hands you administer tyranny on the earth.

3 Since the womb they have gone astray, the wicked, on the wrong path since their birth, with their unjust verdicts.

4 They are poisonous as any snake, deaf as an adder that blocks its ears

5 so as not to hear the magician's music, however skilful his spells.

6 God, break the teeth in their mouths, snap off the fangs of these young lions, Yahweh.

7 May they drain away like water running to waste, may they wither like trampled grass,

8 like the slug that melts as it moves or a still-born child that never sees the sun.

9 Before they sprout thorns like the bramble, green or burnt up, may retribution whirl them away.

10 The upright will rejoice to see vengeance done, and will bathe his feet in the blood of the wicked.

11 'So', people will say, 'the upright does have a reward; there is a God to dispense justice on earth.'
