|To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, Michtam of David.
|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,
||as soon as they be born|
is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the
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
||in their mouth|
|7||Let them melt away as
waters which run continually: when he bendeth his
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.
||snail which melteth|
|9||Before your pots can
feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both
and in his wrath.
|10||The righteous shall
rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the
of the wicked.
|11||So that a man shall
say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a
that judgeth in the earth.
