Prayer for the Punishment of the Wicked.
For the choir director; set to ▼▼ Lit Do Not DestroyAl-tashheth. A ▼▼ Possibly Epigrammatic Poem or Atonement PsalmMikhtam of David.1 Do you indeed ▼
▼ 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?
2No, in heart you g work unrighteousness;
On earth you h weigh out the violence of your hands.
3The wicked are estranged i from the womb;
These who speak lies j go astray from ▼
▼ Lit the wombbirth.
4They have venom like the l venom of a serpent;
Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear,
5So that it m does not hear the voice of ▼
▼ Or whisperers, o charmers,
Or a skillful caster of spells.
6O God p shatter their teeth in their mouth;
Break out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord.
7Let them q flow away like water that runs off;
When he ▼
▼ Lit bends, s aims his arrows, let them be as ▼
▼ Lit though they were cut offheadless shafts.
8 Let them be as a snail which ▼
▼ I.e. secretes slimemelts away as it goes along,
Like the v miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.
9Before your w pots can feel the fire of thorns
He will x sweep them away with a whirlwind, the ▼
▼ Lit livinggreen and the burning alike.
10The z righteous will rejoice when he aa sees the vengeance;
He will ab wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11And 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!”
