1 Do you indeed speak righteousness, O gods? Do you ajudge uprightly, O sons of men? 2 No, in heart you awork unrighteousness; On earth you bweigh out the violence of your hands. 3 The wicked are estranged afrom the womb; These who speak lies bgo astray from birth. 4 They have venom like the avenom of a serpent; Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear, 5 So that it adoes not hear the voice of bcharmers, Or a skillful caster of spells. 6 O God, ashatter their teeth in their mouth; Break out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord. 7 Let them aflow away like water that runs off; When he baims his arrows, let them be as headless shafts. 8 Let them be as a snail which melts away as it goes along, Like the amiscarriages of a woman which never see the sun. 9 Before your apots can feel the fire of thorns He will bsweep them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike. 10 The arighteous will rejoice when he bsees the vengeance; He will cwash his feet in the blood of the wicked. 11 And men will say, "Surely there is a areward for the righteous; Surely there is a God who bjudges on earth!"
