1 For the leader. Of David. In the LORD I take refuge; how can you say to me, "Flee like a bird to the mountains!
See how the wicked string their bows, fit their arrows to the string to shoot from the shadows at the upright.
2 When foundations are being destroyed, what can the upright do?"
The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD'S throne is in heaven. God's eyes keep careful watch; they test all peoples.
The LORD tests the good and the bad, hates those who love violence,
3 And rains upon the wicked fiery coals and brimstone, a scorching wind their allotted cup.
The LORD is just and loves just deeds; the upright shall see his face.
