Psalm 58
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

God Judges the Earth

1(57:1) For the end. Destroy not: by David, for a memorial. If ye do indeed speak righteousness, then do ye judge rightly, ye sons of men.

2(57:2) For ye work iniquities in your hearts in the earth: your hands plot unrighteousness.

3(57:3) Sinners have gone astray from the womb: they go astray from the belly: they speak lies.

4(57:4) Their venom is like that of a serpent; as that of a deaf asp, and that stops her ears;

5(57:5) which will not hear the voice of charmers, nor heed the charm prepared skillfully by the wise.

6(57:6) God has crushed their teeth in their mouth: God has broken the cheek-teeth of the lions.

7(57:7) They shall utterly pass away like water running through: he shall bend his bow till they shall fail.

8(57:8) They shall be destroyed as melted wax: the fire has fallen and they have not seen the sun.

9(57:9) Before your thorns feel the white thorn, he shall swallow you up as living, as in his wrath.

10(57:10) The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance of the ungodly: he shall wash his hands in the blood of the sinner.

11(57:11) And a man shall say, Verily then there is a reward for the righteous: verily there is a God that judges them in the earth.
