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.’

Psalm 59

1  Rescue me from my enemies, O my God; ♦︎
   set me high above those that rise up against me.
2  Save me from the evildoers ♦︎
   and from murderous foes deliver me.
3  For see how they lie in wait for my soul ♦︎
   and the mighty stir up trouble against me.
4  Not for any fault or sin of mine, O Lord; ♦︎
   for no offence, they run and prepare themselves for war.
5  Rouse yourself, come to my aid and see; ♦︎
   for you are the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel.
6  Awake, and judge all the nations; ♦︎
   show no mercy to the evil traitors.
7  They return at nightfall and snarl like dogs ♦︎
   and prowl about the city.
8  They pour out evil words with their mouths;
      swords are on their lips; ♦︎
   ‘For who’, they say, ‘can hear us?’
9  But you laugh at them, O Lord; ♦︎
   you hold all the nations in derision.
10  For you, O my strength, will I watch; ♦︎
   you, O God, are my strong tower.
11  My God in his steadfast love will come to me; ♦︎
   he will let me behold the downfall of my enemies.
12  Slay them not, lest my people forget; ♦︎
   send them reeling by your might
      and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
13  For the sins of their mouth, for the words of their lips, ♦︎
   let them be taken in their pride.
14  For the cursing and falsehood they have uttered, ♦︎
   consume them in wrath, consume them till they are no more.
15  And they shall know that God rules in Jacob, ♦︎
   and to the ends of the earth.
16  And still they return at nightfall and snarl like dogs ♦︎
   and prowl about the city.
17  Though they forage for something to devour, ♦︎
   and howl if they are not filled,
18  Yet will I sing of your strength ♦︎
   and every morning praise your steadfast love;
19  For you have been my stronghold, ♦︎
   my refuge in the day of my trouble.
20  To you, O my strength, will I sing; ♦︎
   for you, O God, are my refuge,
      my God of steadfast love.
