Judge of the Judges

58 For the Pure and Shining One
King David’s golden song of instruction
To the tune of “Do Not Destroy”
1–2 God’s justice? You high and mighty politicians
know nothing about it!
Which one of you has walked in justice toward others?
Which one of you has treated everyone right and fair?
Not one! You only give “justice” in exchange for a bribe.
For the right price you let others get away with murder.
3–4 Wicked wanderers even from the womb, that’s who you are!
Lying with your words, your teaching is poison.[a]

  1. Psalm 58:3 The Hebrew says, “venom of a serpent,” which is a clear metaphor for wrong teaching.
