Psalm 58. Si vere utique.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eleventh Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. ARE your minds set upon righteousness, O ye congregation? *
    and do ye judge the thing that is right, O ye sons of men?
  2. Yea, ye imagine mischief in your heart upon the earth, *
    and your hands deal with wickedness.
  3. The ungodly are froward, even from their mother's womb; *
    as soon as they are born, they go astray, and speak lies.
  4. They are as venomous as the poison of a serpent, *
    even like the deaf adder, that stoppeth her ears;
  5. Which refuseth to hear the voice of the charmer, *
    charm he never so wisely.
  6. Break their teeth, O God, in their mouths; *
    smite the jawbones of the lions, O Lord.
  7. Let them fall away like water that runneth apace; *
    when they shoot their arrows, let them be rooted out.
  8. Let them consume away like a snail, and be like the untimely fruit of a woman; *
    and let them not see the sun.
  9. Or ever your pots be made hot with thorns, *
    he shall take them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.
  10. The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; *
    he shall wash his footsteps in the blood of the ungodly.
  11. So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous; *
    doubtless there is a God that judgeth the earth.
