If your minds be upon righteousness in deed, then judge the
thing that is right, O' ye sons of men.
But ye imagine mischief in your hearts, and your hands deal
with wickedness. The ungodly are *froward, even from their mothers
womb: as soon as they be born, they go and stray and speak lies.
They are as furious as the serpent, even like the deaf adder that
stoppeth her ears. That she should not hear the voice of the
charmer, charm he never so wisely.
Break their teeth ( O' God ) in their mouths, smite the *chaft
bones of the lions whelps in sonder, O' Lord. That they may fall
away, like water that runneth a pace: and that when they shoot their
arrows, they may be broken. Let them consume away like a snail, and
like the untimely fruit of a woman, and let them not see the *sunne.
Or ever your thorns be sharp, that wrath shall take them
quick, like a stormy wind.
The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance, and
shall wash his feet in the blood of the ungodly.
So that a men shall say, verily there is a reward for the
righteous: doubtless, there is a God that judgeth in the earth.
