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.
