(6) God, break their teeth in their mouth!
Shatter the fangs of these lions, Adonai!
(7) May they vanish like water that drains away.
May their arrows be blunted when they aim their bows.
(8) May they be like a slug that melts as it moves,
like a stillborn baby that never sees the sun.

Let them vanish like water that flows away;(A)
    when they draw the bow, let their arrows fall short.(B)
May they be like a slug that melts away as it moves along,(C)
    like a stillborn child(D) that never sees the sun.

Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns(E)
    whether they be green or dry—the wicked will be swept away.[a](F)
