Psalm 58
Brenton Septuagint Translation

God Judges the Earth

1For the end. Destroy not: by David, for a memorial. If ye do indeed speak righteousness, then do ye judge rightly, ye sons of men.

2For ye work iniquities in your hearts in the earth: your hands plot unrighteousness.

3Sinners have gone astray from the womb: they go astray from the belly: they speak lies.

4Their venom is like that of a serpent; as that of a deaf asp, and that stops her ears;

5which will not hear the voice of charmers, nor heed the charm prepared skillfully by the wise.

6God has crushed their teeth in their mouth: God has broken the cheek-teeth of the lions.

7They shall utterly pass away like water running through: he shall bend his bow till they shall fail.

8They shall be destroyed as melted wax: the fire has fallen and they have not seen the sun.

9Before your thorns feel the white thorn, he shall swallow you up as living, as in his wrath.

10The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance of the ungodly: he shall wash his hands in the blood of the sinner.

11And a man shall say, Verily then there is a reward for the righteous: verily there is a God that judges them in the earth.
