Psalms 58:1-5

God Who Judges the Earth

To the choirmaster: according to a  Do Not Destroy. A b  Miktam
Probably a musical or liturgical term
of David.

1 Do you indeed decree what is right, you gods?
Or  you mighty lords (by revocalization; Hebrew in silence)

Do you judge the children of man uprightly?
2No, in your hearts you devise wrongs;
your hands e  deal out violence on earth.
3 The wicked are f  estranged from the womb;
they go astray from birth, speaking lies.
4 g  They have venom like the venom of a serpent,
like the deaf adder that stops its ear,
5so that it h  does not hear the voice of charmers
or of the cunning enchanter.
