Psalms 58

Psalms 58:1  
To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David. Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

Psalms 58:2  
Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

Psalms 58:3  
The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

Psalms 58:4  
Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

Psalms 58:5  
Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

Psalms 58:6  
Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

Psalms 58:7  
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.

Psalms 58:8  
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.

Psalms 58:9  
Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

Psalms 58:10  
The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
