Prayer for the Punishment of the Wicked.

1 Do you indeed aspeak righteousness, O bgods? Do you 1judge cuprightly, O sons of men? 2 No, in heart you 2work unrighteousness; On earth you 3weigh out the violence of your hands. 3 The wicked are estranged 4from the womb; These who speak lies 5go astray from dbirth. 4 They have venom like the 6venom of a serpent; Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear, 5 So that it 7does not hear the voice of e8charmers, Or a skillful caster of spells. 6 O God, 9shatter their teeth in their mouth; Break out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD. 7 Let them 10flow away like water that runs off; When he f11aims his arrows, let them be as gheadless shafts. 8 Let them be as a snail which hmelts away as it goes along, Like the 12miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun. 9 Before your 13pots can feel the fire of thorns He will 14sweep them away with a whirlwind, the igreen and the burning alike. 10 The 15righteous will rejoice when he 16sees the vengeance; He will 17wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. 11 And men will say, "Surely there is a j18reward for the righteous; Surely there is a God who 19judges kon earth!"
