Prayer for the Punishment of the Wicked.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 58:1 - For the choir director; set to [fn]Al-tashheth. A [fn]Mikhtam of David.

These who speak lies go astray from [fn]birth.

Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 58:5 - So that it does not hear the voice of [fn]charmers,
Or a skillful caster of spells.

Break out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD.

When he [fn]aims his arrows, let them be as [fn]headless shafts.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 58:8 - Let them be as a snail which [fn]melts away as it goes along,
Like the miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 58:9 - Before your pots can feel the fire of thorns
He will sweep them away with a whirlwind, the [fn]green and the burning alike.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 58:10 - The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance;
He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 58:11 - And men will say, “Surely there is a [fn]reward for the righteous;
Surely there is a God who judges [fn]on earth!”
