Psalm 58
Si vere utique

Are your minds set upon righteousness, O ye congregation? and do ye judge the thing that is right, O ye sons of men? Yea, ye imagine mischief in your heart upon the earth, and your hands deal with wickedness.

The ungodly are froward, even from their mother’s womb;
as soon as they are born, they go astray, and speak lies.

They are as venomous as the poison of a serpent, even like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ears, which refuseth to hear the voice of the charmer, charm he never so wisely.

Break their teeth, O God, in their mouths;
smite the jawbones of the lions, O Lord.

Let them fall away like water that runneth apace;
and when they shoot their arrows, let them be rooted out.

Let them consume away like a snail, and be like the untimely fruit of a woman;
and let them not see the sun.

Or ever your pots be made hot with thorns, so let indignation vex him, even as a thing that is raw.

The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance;
he shall wash his footsteps in the blood of the ungodly.

So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous;
doubtless there is a God that judgeth the earth.
