Psalms 581 For the Chief Musician; set to Al-tashheth. A Psalm of David. Michtam. ▼ Do ye indeed ▼
▼ 2in silence speak righteousness? Do ye ▼
▼ 3judge uprightly, O ye sons of men? ▼
▼ 1) Or Is the righteousness ye should speak dumb? 2) Or as otherwise read O ye gods ; Or O ye mighty ones 3) Or judge uprightly the sons of men2 Nay, in heart ye work wickedness; Ye weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth. 3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies. 4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: They are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear, 5 Which hearkeneth not to the voice of ▼ charmers, Charming never so wisely. ▼
▼ 1) Or enchanters6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: Break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Jehovah. 7 Let them melt away as water that runneth apace: When he aimeth his arrows, let them be as though they were cut off. 8 Let them be as a snail which melteth and passeth away, Like the untimely birth of a woman, ▼ that hath not seen the sun. ▼
▼ 1) Or, like them that have not seen the sun9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, ▼ He will take them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike. ▼
▼ 1) Or Wrath shall take them away while living as with a whirlwind10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked; 11 So that men shall say, Verily there is ▼ a reward for the righteous: Verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth. ▼
▼ 1) Heb fruit
