Psalm 58: Do Ye İNdeed Speak Righteousness, O Congregation? - Poem by King David of Israel

1 Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation?
do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness;
ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

3 The wicked are estranged from the womb:
they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent:
they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers,
charming never so wisely.

6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth:
break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually:
when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows,
let them be as cut in pieces.

8 As a snail which melteth,
let every one of them pass away:
like the untimely birth of a woman,
that they may not see the sun.

9 Before your pots can feel the thorns,
he shall take them away as with a whirlwind,
both living, and in his wrath.

10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance:
he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

11 So that a man shall say,
Verily there is a reward for the righteous:
verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
