Psalm 58:1-11 Voice

Psalm 58:1-11 Voice [1] Can you, panel of judges, get anything right? When you judge people, do you tell the truth and pursue justice? [2] No, your real selves have been revealed. You have wickedness in your heart, and many people have suffered by your hands. [3] Evildoers are naturally offensive, wayward at birth! They were born telling lies and willfully wandering from the truth. [4] Their bite is painful; their venom is like the deadly poison of a snake; they are like a cobra that closes up its ears [5] To escape the voice of the charmers, no matter how enchanting the spells may be. [6] O God, shatter their teeth in their mouths! Render the young lions harmless; break out their fangs, O Eternal One. [7] Let them run off like the waters of a flood, and though they aim their arrows, let them fly without their heads. [8] Let them melt like a snail that oozes along; may they be like a stillborn that never catches its first breath, never sees the sun. [9] Before your cook pots know the furious flame of a fire of thorns- whether green or burning-He will blow the wicked away. [10] Cheers will rise as the right-living watch Him settle the score, their feet washed in the blood after the onslaught of the wicked. [11] And it will be heard, "Those who seek justice will be rewarded. Indeed, there is a God who brings justice to the earth!"
