Psalm 58 declares that wicked people may seem to be flaunting the Lord and getting by with it, but eventually they will pay for their evil deeds.
The psalmist compared the wicked to a snake that refused to be charmed by a snake charmer. Like these uncontrollable snakes, the wicked are always ready to bite the righteous, since they will not give in to the Lord’s control.
Snake charming was like a circus act in Bible times. People paid magicians and wizards to see them practice this ancient art. Solomon observed, “If a snake bites before it is charmed, there is no profit for the charmer” (Ecc 10:11 NIV).
PSALM 58:9 – Before your pots can feel the thorns, he [the Lord] shall take [the wicked] away as with a whirlwind.
