To the choir director: Do not destroy. Of David. A Michtam

Ps 58:1Do you indeed, O judges, speak righteousness? / Do you judge in uprightness, O sons of men?

Ps 58:2No, in heart you perform injustice; / You weigh out the violence of your hands on earth.

Ps 58:3The wicked are estranged from the womb; / They err from their birth, speaking lies.

Ps 58:4Their venom is like the venom of a serpent; / They are like the deaf cobra that has shut its ear,

Ps 58:5Which does not hear the sound of the charmers / Or the wise spellbinder.

Ps 58:6O God, break their teeth in their mouth; / Break off the fangs of the young lions, O Jehovah.

Ps 58:7Let them melt like water that runs off. / When he shoots his arrows, / Let them be as though they were cut off.

Ps 58:8Let them be like a snail that melts and goes away, / Like a woman’s miscarriage, which by no means sees the sun.

Ps 58:9Before your pots can feel the fire of the thorns, / Whether green or burning, He will sweep them away.

Ps 58:10The righteous man will rejoice when he sees vengeance; / He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

Ps 58:11And men will say, Indeed there is fruit for the righteous man; / Indeed there is a God who judges on earth.
