English Standard Version
7 Let them (A)vanish like water that runs away;
when he (B)aims his arrows, let them be blunted.
8 Let them be like the snail (C)that dissolves into slime,
like (D)the stillborn child who never sees the sun.
9 Sooner than your pots can feel the heat of (E)thorns,
whether green or ablaze, may he (F)sweep them away![a]
- Psalm 58:9 The meaning of the Hebrew verse is uncertain
