58:1 (To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David.) Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O a congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

    (a) You counsellors of Saul, who under pretence of consulting for the common wealth, conspire my death being an innocent.
58:2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of b your hands in the earth.
    (b) You are not ashamed to execute that cruelty publicly, which you have imagined in your hearts.
58:3 The wicked c are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
    (c) That is, enemies to the people of God even from their birth.
58:4 Their poison [is] like the poison of a serpent: [they are] like the deaf d adder [that] stoppeth her ear;
    (d) They pass in malice and subtilty the crafty serpent who could preserve himself by stopping his ears from the enchanter.
58:6 Break their e teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
    (e) Take away all opportunity and means by which they hurt.
58:7 Let them f melt away as waters [which] run continually: [when] he bendeth [his bow to shoot] his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
    (f) Considering God's divine power, he shows that God in a moment can destroy their force of which they brag.

58:9 g Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in [his] wrath.

    (g) As flesh is taken raw out of the pot before the water boils: so he desires God to destroy their enterprises before they bring them to pass.
58:10 The righteous shall h rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the i blood of the wicked.
    (h) With a pure affection.
    (i) Their punishment and slaughter will be so great.
58:11 So that a man shall say, k Verily [there is] a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
    (k) Seeing God governs all by his providence, he must put a difference between the godly and the wicked.
