Tehillim - Psalms 58


1For the Leader; Al-tashheth. [A Psalm] of David; Michtam.
2Do ye indeed speak as a righteous company?Do ye judge with equity the sons of men?
3Yea, in heart ye work wickedness;Ye weigh out in the earth the violence of your hands.
4The wicked are estranged from the womb;The speakers of lies go astray as soon as they are born.
5Their venom is like the venom of a serpent;They are like the deaf asp that stoppeth her ear;
6Which hearkeneth not to the voice of charmers,Or of the most cunning binder of spells.
7Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth;Break out the cheek-teeth of the young lions, O Lord.
8Let them melt away as water that runneth apace;When he aimeth his arrows, let them be as though they were cut off.
9Let them be as a snail which melteth and passeth away;Like the untimely births of a woman, that have not seen the sun.
10Before your pots can feel the thorns,He will sweep it away with a whirlwind, the raw and the burning alike.
11The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance;He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
12And men shall say: ‘Verily there is a reward for the righteous;Verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth.’
