Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 In the Lord put I my faith; how will you say to my soul, Go in flight like a bird to the mountain? 1 In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 See, the bows of the evil-doers are bent, they make ready their arrows on the cord, so that they may send them secretly against the upright in heart. 2 For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.
3 If the bases are broken down, what is the upright man to do? 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 The Lord is in his holy Temple, the Lord's seat is in heaven; his eyes are watching and testing the children of men. 4 The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them.
5 The Lord puts the upright and the sinner to the test, but he has hate in his soul for the lover of violent acts. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 On the evil-doer he will send down fire and flames, and a burning wind; with these will their cup be full. 6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 For the Lord is upright; he is a lover of righteousness: the upright will see his face. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
