Psalm 58

1  Do you indeed speak justly, you mighty? 
   Do you rule the peoples with equity?
2  With unjust heart you act throughout the land; 
   your hands mete out violence.
3  The wicked are estranged, even from the womb; 
   those who speak falsehood go astray from their birth.
4  They are as venomous as a serpent; 
   they are like the deaf adder which stops its ears,
5  Which does not heed the voice of the charmers, 
   and is deaf to the skilful weaver of spells.
6  Break, O God, their teeth in their mouths; 
   smash the fangs of these lions, O Lord.
7  Let them vanish like water that runs away; 
   let them wither like trodden grass.
8  Let them be as the slimy track of the snail, 
   like the untimely birth that never sees the sun.
9  Before ever their pots feel the heat of the thorns, 
   green or blazing, let them be swept away.
10  The righteous will be glad when they see God’s vengeance; 
   they will bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked.
11  So that people will say,
      ‘Truly, there is a harvest for the righteous; 
   truly, there is a God who judges in the earth.’
