Chapter 58

1

  For the Chief Musician; [set to] Al-tashheth. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam. Do ye indeed in silence speak righteousness? Do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men? 


2

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


3

 The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they are 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 hearkeneth not 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 Jehovah. 


7

 Let them melt away as water that runneth apace: When he aimeth his arrows, let them be as though they were cut off. 


8

 [Let them be] as a snail which melteth and passeth away, [Like] the untimely birth of a woman, that hath not seen the sun. 


9

 Before your pots can feel the thorns, He will take them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike. 


10

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


11

 So that men shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: Verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth. For the Chief Musician; [set to] Al-tashheth. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.
