Psalm chapter 58

Bible Version
Book
Chapter
Commentary
1
[For the choir director: "Do Not Destroy." A Davidic Miktam.] Do you really speak righteously, you mighty ones? Do you judge people fairly?
2
No, you practice injustice in your hearts; with your hands you weigh out violence in the land.
3
The wicked go astray from the womb; liars err from birth.
4
They have venom like the venom of a snake, like the deaf cobra that stops up its ears,
5
that does not listen to the sound of the charmers who skillfully weave spells.
6
God, knock the teeth out of their mouths; LORD, tear out the young lions' fangs.
7
They will vanish like water that flows by; they will aim their useless arrows.
8
Like a slug that moves along in slime, like a woman's miscarried [child], they will not see the sun.
9
Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns-- whether green or burning-- He will sweep them away.
10
The righteous will rejoice when he sees the retribution; he will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11
Then people will say, "Yes, there is a reward for the righteous! There is a God who judges on earth!"
