Prayer for Vengeance

To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam of David.

58 Do you indeed decree what is right, you gods?[a]
    Do you judge the sons of men uprightly?
Nay, in your hearts you devise wrongs;
    your hands deal out violence on earth.

The wicked go astray from the womb,
    they err from their birth, speaking lies.
