▼ Another reading is speak righteousness in silencespeak righteousness, O ▼
▼ Or mighty ones or judgesgods?
Do you e judge ▼
▼ Or uprightly the sons of menuprightly, O sons of men?
2 No, in heart you g work unrighteousness;
On earth you h weigh out the violence of your hands.
3 The wicked are estranged i from the womb;
These who speak lies j go astray from ▼

4 They have venom like the l venom of a serpent;
Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear,
5 So that it m does not hear the voice of ▼
▼ Or whisperers, o charmers,
Or a skillful caster of spells.
6 O God p shatter their teeth in their mouth;
Break out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord.
7 Let them q flow away like water that runs off;
When he ▼

▼ Lit though they were cut offheadless shafts.
8 Let them be as a snail which ▼

Like the v miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.
9 Before your w pots can feel the fire of thorns
He will x sweep them away with a whirlwind, the ▼

10 The z righteous will rejoice when he aa sees the vengeance;
He will ab wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 And men will say, “Surely there is a ▼
▼ Lit fruit, ad reward for the righteous;
Surely there is a God who ae judges ▼
▼ Or inon earth!”
