To the Overcomer upon, Do not destroy, Michtam of David.

¶ Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of Adam?

Yea, in heart ye work iniquity; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.

Their poison is like the poison of a serpent; they are like the deaf adder that stops her ear,

which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

¶ Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

Let them melt away as waters which run continually; when he bends his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

As a snail which melts, let them pass away, like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

Before your pots can feel the fire of the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous; verily there is a God that judges in the earth.
