I have taken refuge in the LORD. So how can you say to me,a “Flee to the hills like a bird
because the wicked have already bent their bows; they've already strung their arrows; they are ready to secretly shoot those whose heart is right”?
When the very bottom of things falls out, what can a righteous person possibly accomplish?
But the LORD is in his holy temple. The LORD! His throne is in heaven. His eyes see— his vision examines all of humanity.
The LORD examines both the righteous and the wicked; his very beingb hates anyone who loves violence.
God will rain fiery coals and sulfur on the wicked; their cups will be filled with nothing but a scorching hot wind
because the LORD is righteous! He loves righteous deeds. Those whose heart is right will see God's face.c
