Prayer for the Punishment of the Wicked.

For the choir director; set to [a]Al-tashheth. A [b]Mikhtam of David.

58 Do you indeed [c]speak righteousness, O [d]gods?
Do you (A)judge [e]uprightly, O sons of men?
No, in heart you (B)work unrighteousness;
On earth you (C)weigh out the violence of your hands.
The wicked are estranged (D)from the womb;
These who speak lies (E)go astray from [f]birth.
