3 If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do? 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 Jehovah [is] in the temple of his holiness; Jehovah, -- his throne is in the heavens: his eyes behold, his eyelids try 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 Jehovah trieth the righteous one; but the wicked, and him that loveth violence, his soul hateth. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone; and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 For righteous is Jehovah; he loveth righteousness, his countenance doth behold the upright. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
