Psalm 58 There is a God who Judges on Earth

Psalm 58

There is a God who Judges on Earth

1 Do you indeed decree what is right, you gods?

   Do you judge the sons of men uprightly?

2 Nay, in your hearts you devise wrongs;

   your hands deal out violence on earth.

3 The wicked go astray from the womb,

   they err from their birth, speaking lies.

4 They have venom like the venom of a serpent,

   like the deaf adder that stops its ear,

5 so that it does not hear the voice of charmers

   or of the cunning enchanter.

6 O God, break the teeth in their mouths;

   tear out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord!

7 Let them vanish like water that runs away;

   like grass let them be trodden down and wither.

8 Let them be like the snail which dissolves into slime,

   like the untimely birth that never sees the sun.

9 Sooner than your pots can feel the heat of thorns,

   whether green or ablaze, may he sweep them away!

10 The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance;

   he will bathe his feet in the blood of the wicked.

11 Men will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous;

   surely there is a God who judges on earth.”
