New International Version
The righteous will be glad when they are avenged, when they dip their feet in the blood of the wicked.

The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his footsteps in the blood of the wicked:
World English Bible

Psalm 58:10 Parallel

If the passage above be really vindictive, and it certainly will admit of the interpretation given above, it is to be considered as not belonging to that state in which the Son of man is come, not to destroy men's lives, but to save.

That day the LORD saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the shore.
Rejoice, you nations, with his people, for he will avenge the blood of his servants; he will take vengeance on his enemies and make atonement for his land and people.
The righteous see their ruin and rejoice; the innocent mock them, saying,
Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
The righteous will rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in him; all the upright in heart will glory in him!
that your feet may wade in the blood of your foes, while the tongues of your dogs have their share."
You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
