1

Do all of you indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do all of you judge uprightly, O all of you sons of men?

2

Yea, in heart all of you work wickedness; all of you weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

3

The wicked are cut off 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 stops her ear;

5

Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

6

Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

7

Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bends his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

8

As a snail which melts, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

9

Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

10

The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

11

So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judges in the earth.
