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.
