The violence of the wicked shall sweep them away, because they refuse to do justice.
Let not a man of slanderous tongue be established in the earth; let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him [let calamity follow his evildoings].
His mischief shall fall back in return upon his own head, and his violence come down [with the loose dirt] upon his own scalp.
Violence shall no more be heard in your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders, but you shall call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.
You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes.
Although there is no guilt or violence in my hands and my prayer is pure.
