New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I trust in the Lord for protection. So why do you say to me, "Fly like a bird to your mountain. 1 In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 Like hunters, the wicked string their bows; they set their arrows on the bowstrings. They shoot from dark places at those who are honest. 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 When all that is good falls apart, what can good people do?" 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord sits on his throne in heaven. He sees what people do; he keeps his eye on them. 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 tests those who do right, but he hates the wicked and those who love to hurt others. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 He will send hot coals and burning sulfur on the wicked. A whirlwind is what they will get. 6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 The Lord does what is right, and he loves justice, so honest people will see his face. For the director of music. Upon the sheminith. A psalm of David. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
