Picture of Psalm 58: Break the Teeth of the Wicked Judges (Judges depicted by the Psalmist as young lions, calling for their teeth to be smashed out)

Break the Teeth of the Wicked Judges

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?

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

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

H · G · S  as soon as they be born
4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

H · G · S  deaf adder
5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

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

H · G · S  in their mouth
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.

H · G · S  
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.

H · G · S  snail which melteth
9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

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

H · G · S  
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. H · G · S
