To the Heavenly Worship Leader, Al-Tashkhet [do not destroy], Mikhtam [meaning disputed] of David [Beloved].
1Do you2f indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do you2f judge uprightly, O you2f sons of men?
2Yea, in heart your2f work wickedness; you2f weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
3The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
4Their poison [is] like the poison of a serpent: [they are] like the deaf adder [that] stops her ear;
5Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
6Break their teeth, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate].
7Let them melt away as waters [which] run continually: [when] he bends [his bow to shoot] his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
8As a snail [which] melts, let [every one of them] pass away: [like] the untimely birth of a woman, [that] they may not see the sun.
9Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in [his] wrath.
10The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11So that a man shall say, Truly [there is] a reward for the righteous: truly he is Elohim Shof’tim [God the Judge] in the earth.
