Psalms 58:4-5

Context

58:4 Their venom is like that of a snake, 1 

like a deaf serpent 2  that does not hear, 3 

58:5 that does not respond to 4  the magicians,

or to a skilled snake-charmer.

1 tn Heb “[there is] venom to them according to the likeness of venom of a snake.”

2 tn Or perhaps “cobra” (cf. NASB, NIV). Other suggested species of snakes are “asp” (NEB) and “adder” (NRSV).

3 tn Heb “[that] stops up its ear.” The apparent Hiphil jussive verbal form should be understood as a Qal imperfect with “i” theme vowel (see GKC 168 §63.n).

4 tn Heb “does not listen to the voice of.”
