Psalm 58:3-5 (JDV)

Psalm 58:3 The wicked go astray from the womb; liars wander about from birth.
Psalm 58:4 They have venom like the venom of a snake, like the deaf cobra who stops up his ears,
Psalm 58:5 who does not listen to the sound of the charmers who skillfully weave spells.

Cobras are deaf to ambient noises, and rely on ground vibrations instead. As such, they are a good illustration of the kind of people the psalmist is talking about. They don’t seem to have the conscience filter that average people are born with.

Lord, give us a sensitivity to right and wrong so that we can lead others to you without hypocrisy.
