Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 58

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 For the Leader; Al-tashheth. A Psalm of David; Michtam.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Do ye indeed speak as a righteous company? Do ye judge with equity the sons of men?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh out in the earth the violence of your hands.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 The wicked are estranged from the womb; the speakers of lies go astray as soon as they are born.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Their venom is like the venom of a serpent; they are like the deaf asp that stoppeth her ear;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Which hearkeneth not to the voice of charmers, or of the most cunning binder of spells.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Break their teeth, O G-d, in their mouth; break out the cheek-teeth of the young lions, O HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Let them melt away as water that runneth apace; when he aimeth his arrows, let them be as though they were cut off.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Let them be as a snail which melteth and passeth away; like the untimely births of a woman, that have not seen the sun.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Before your pots can feel the thorns, He will sweep it away with a whirlwind, the raw and the burning alike.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 And men shall say: 'Verily there is a reward for the righteous; verily there is a G-d that judgeth in the earth.'
