58:3The wicked are estranged from the womb:

They are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear,
58:5Which hearkeneth not to the voice of charmers,
Charming never so wisely.
58:6Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth:

58:7Let them melt away as water that runneth apace:
When he aimeth his arrows, let them be as though they were cut off.
58:8Let them be as a snail which melteth and passeth away,
58:9Before your pots can feel the thorns,
He will take them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.
58:10The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance:
58:11So that men shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous:
