Psalm 58

Psalms: 58

Judge of Earthly Judges.  Psalm 58(v57)

To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam of David.

1Do you indeed decree what is right, you gods?
Do you judge the sons of men uprightly?
2Nay, in your hearts you devise wrongs;
your hands deal out violence on earth.

3The wicked go astray from the womb,
they err from their birth, speaking lies.
4They have venom like the venom of a serpent,
like the deaf adder that stops its ear,
5so that it does not hear the voice of charmers
or of the cunning enchanter.

6O God, break the teeth in their mouths;
tear out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD!
7Let them vanish like water that runs away;
like grass let them be trodden down and wither.
8Let them be like the snail which dissolves into slime,
like the untimely birth that never sees the sun.
9Sooner than your pots can feel the heat of thorns,
whether green or ablaze, may he sweep them away!
10The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance;
he will bathe his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11Men will say, "Surely there is a reward for the righteous;
surely there is a God who judges on earth."
