Chapter 57

1


 

  Unto the end, destroy not, for David, for an inscription of a title.  

 

 


2


 

  If in very deed you speak justice: judge right things, ye sons of men.  

 

 


3


 

  For in your heart you work iniquity: your hands forge injustice in the earth.  

 

 


4


 

  The wicked are alienated from the womb; they have gone astray from the womb: they have spoken false things.  

 

 


5


 

  Their madness is according to the likeness of a serpent: like the deaf asp that stoppeth her ears:  

 

 


6


 

  Which will not hear the voice of the charmers; nor of the wizard that charmeth wisely.  

 

 


7


 

  God shall break in pieces their teeth in their mouth: the Lord shall break the grinders of the lions.  

 

 


8


 

  They shall come to nothing, like water running down; he hath bent his bow till they be weakened.  

 

 


9


 

  Like wax that melteth they shall be taken away: fire hath fallen on them, and they shall not see the sun.  

 

 


10


 

  Before your thorns could know the brier; he swalloweth them up, as alive, in his wrath.  

 

 


11


 

  The just shall rejoice when he shall see the revenge: he shall wash his hands in the blood of the sinner.  

 

 


12


 

  And man shall say: If indeed there be fruit to the just: there is indeed a God that judgeth them on the earth.
