The Book of Psalms
Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O ye judges? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
2 Nay, in your 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 be born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth its ear;
5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming ever so skilfully.
6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD.
7 Let them melt away as waters which run down: when he bendeth his bow, let his arrows be blunted.
8 As a snail which melteth, as it passeth by: like the untimely birth of a woman, may they never see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the heat of thorns, he shall sweep them away with a whirlwind, both the green, and the burning.
10 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.
