Psalm 58 (WEBP)

[1] Do you indeed speak righteousness, silent ones? Do you judge blamelessly, you sons of men?
[2] No, in your heart you plot injustice. You measure out the violence of your hands in the earth.
[3] The wicked go astray from the womb. They are wayward as soon as they are born, speaking lies.
[4] Their poison is like the poison of a snake, like a deaf cobra that stops its ear,
[5] which doesn’t listen to the voice of charmers, no matter how skillful the charmer may be.
[6] Break their teeth, God, in their mouth. Break out the great teeth of the young lions, Yahweh.
[7] Let them vanish like water that flows away. When they draw the bow, let their arrows be made blunt.
[8] Let them be like a snail which melts and passes away, like the stillborn child, who has not seen the sun.
[9] Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns, he will sweep away the green and the burning alike.
[10] The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance. He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked,
[11] so that men shall say, “Most certainly there is a reward for the righteous. Most certainly there is a God who judges the earth.”

Psalm 58 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), Altaschith H516 (8686), Michtam H4387 of David H1732.» Do ye indeed H552 speak H1696 (8762) righteousness H6664, O congregation H482? do ye judge H8199 (8799) uprightly H4339, O ye sons H1121 of men H120?
[2] Yea, in heart H3820 ye work H6466 (8799) wickedness H5766; ye weigh H6424 (8762) the violence H2555 of your hands H3027 in the earth H776.
[3] The wicked H7563 are estranged H2114 (8804) from the womb H7358: they go astray H8582 (8804) as soon as they be born H990, speaking H1696 (8802) lies H3577.
[4] Their poison H2534 [is] like H1823 the poison H2534 of a serpent H5175: [they are] like the deaf H2795 adder H6620 [that] stoppeth H331 (8686) her ear H241;
[5] Which will not hearken H8085 (8799) to the voice H6963 of charmers H3907 (8764), charming H2266 (8802) H2267 never so wisely H2449 (8794).
[6] Break H2040 (8798) their teeth H8127, O God H430, in their mouth H6310: break out H5422 (8800) the great teeth H4459 of the young lions H3715, O LORD H3068.
[7] Let them melt away H3988 (8735) as waters H4325 [which] run continually H1980 (8691): [when] he bendeth H1869 (8799) [his bow to shoot] his arrows H2671, let them be as cut in pieces H4135 (8709).
[8] As a snail H7642 [which] melteth H8557, let [every one of them] pass away H1980 (8799): [like] the untimely birth H5309 of a woman H802, [that] they may not see H2372 (8804) the sun H8121.
[9] Before your pots H5518 can feel H995 (8799) the thorns H329, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind H8175 (8799), both living H2416, and in [his] wrath H2740.
[10] The righteous H6662 shall rejoice H8055 (8799) when he seeth H2372 (8804) the vengeance H5359: he shall wash H7364 (8799) his feet H6471 in the blood H1818 of the wicked H7563.
[11] So that a man H120 shall say H559 (8799), Verily [there is] a reward H6529 for the righteous H6662: verily he is H3426 a God H430 that judgeth H8199 (8802) in the earth H776.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 58 (YLT)

[1] Is it true, O dumb one, righteously ye speak? Uprightly ye judge, O sons of men?
[2] Even in heart ye work iniquities, In the land the violence of your hands ye ponder.
[3] The wicked have been estranged from the womb, They have erred from the belly, speaking lies.
[4] Their poison is as poison of a serpent, As a deaf asp shutting its ear,
[5] Which hearkeneth not to the voice of whisperers, A charmer of charms most skilful.
[6] O God, break their teeth in their mouth, The jaw-teeth of young lions break down, O Jehovah.
[7] They are melted as waters, They go up and down for themselves, His arrow proceedeth as they cut themselves off.
[8] As a snail that melteth he goeth on, As an untimely birth of a woman, They have not seen the sun.
[9] Before your pots discern the bramble, As well the raw as the heated He whirleth away.
[10] The righteous rejoiceth that he hath seen vengeance, His steps he washeth in the blood of the wicked.
[11] And man saith: ‘Surely fruit is for the righteous: Surely there is a God judging in the earth!’
