(A special psalm by David for the music leader. To the tune “Don’t Destroy.”[a])

A Prayer When All Goes Wrong

58 Do you mighty people[b] talk
only to oppose justice?[c]
    Don’t you ever judge fairly?
You are always planning evil,
    and you are brutal.
You have done wrong and lied
    from the day you were born.
