Do you indeed speak righteousness, O gods? Do you ajudge uprightly, O sons of men?
No, in heart you awork unrighteousness; On earth you bweigh out the violence of your hands.
The wicked are estranged afrom the womb; These who speak lies bgo astray from birth.
They have venom like the avenom of a serpent; Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear,
So that it adoes not hear the voice of bcharmers, Or a skillful caster of spells.
O God, ashatter their teeth in their mouth; Break out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord.
Let them aflow away like water that runs off; When he baims his arrows, let them be as headless shafts.
Let them be as a snail which melts away as it goes along, Like the amiscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.
Before your apots can feel the fire of thorns He will bsweep them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.
The arighteous will rejoice when he bsees the vengeance; He will cwash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
And men will say, "Surely there is a areward for the righteous; Surely there is a God who bjudges on earth!"
