Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

58:1Is righteousness indeed silent? Do ye speak it? Do ye judge with equity, ye sons of men?

58:2Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.

58:3The wicked go astray from the womb; they err as soon as they are born, speaking lies.

58:4Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder which stoppeth her ear;

58:5Which doth not hearken to the voice of enchanters, of one charming ever so wisely.

58:6O God, break their teeth in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Jehovah.

58:7Let them melt away as waters that flow off; when he aimeth his arrows, let them be as blunted:

58:8Let them be as a snail that melteth as it passeth away; like the untimely birth of a woman, let them not see the sun.

58:9Before your pots feel the thorns, green or burning, -- they shall be whirled away.

58:10The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his footsteps in the blood of the wicked:

58:11And men shall say, Verily there is fruit for the righteous; verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth.

59:1Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God; secure me on high from them that rise up against me.

59:2Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from men of blood.

59:3For behold, they lie in wait for my soul; strong ones are gathered against me: not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Jehovah.

59:4They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to meet me, and behold.

59:5Yea, do thou, Jehovah, the God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations: be not gracious to any plotters of iniquity. Selah.

59:6They return in the evening; they howl like a dog, and go round about the city:

59:7Behold, they belch out with their mouth; swords are in their lips: for who say they doth hear?

59:8But thou, Jehovah, wilt laugh at them; thou wilt have all the nations in derision.

59:9Their strength! ... I will take heed to thee; for God is my high fortress.

59:10God, whose loving-kindness will come to meet me, -- God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.

59:11Slay them not, lest my people forget; by thy power make them wander, and bring them down, O Lord, our shield.

59:12Because of the sin of their mouth, the word of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride; and because of cursing and lying which they speak.

59:13Make an end in wrath, make an end, that they may be no more; that they may know that God ruleth in Jacob, unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

59:14And in the evening they shall return, they shall howl like a dog, and go round about the city.

59:15They shall wander about for meat, and stay all night if they be not satisfied.

59:16But as for me, I will sing of thy strength; yea, I will sing aloud of thy loving-kindness in the morning; for thou hast been to me a high fortress, and a refuge in the day of my trouble.

59:17Unto thee, my strength, will I sing psalms; for God is my high fortress, the God of my mercy.

60:1O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased: restore us again.

60:2Thou hast made the earth to tremble, thou hast rent it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

60:3Thou hast shewn thy people hard things; thou hast made us to drink the wine of bewilderment.

60:4Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth, (Selah,)

60:5That thy beloved ones may be delivered. Save with thy right hand, and answer me.

60:6God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

60:7Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine, and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver;

60:8Moab is my wash-pot; upon Edom will I cast my sandal; Philistia, shout aloud because of me.

60:9Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me unto Edom?

60:10Wilt not thou, O God, who didst cast us off? and didst not go forth, O God, with our armies?

60:11Give us help from trouble; for vain is man's deliverance.

60:12Through God we shall do valiantly; and he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
