Do ye judge auprightly, O ye sons of men?
aaYe weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
3 bThe wicked are estranged from the womb:
They go astray †as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
They are like the deaf ||adder that stoppeth her ear;
5 Which will not hearken to the voice of dcharmers,
6 fBreak their teeth, O God, in their mouth:
Break out the ggreat teeth of the young lions, O Lord.
7 Let them hmelt away as waters which run continually:
When ihe bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
8 As a snail which hmelteth, let every one of them pass away:
Like iithe untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
10 mThe righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance:
He shall nwash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
Verily phe is a God that judgeth in the earth.
