New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I run to the LORD for safety. So how can you say to me, "Fly away 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 Look! Evil people are bending their bows. They are placing their arrows against the strings. They are planning to shoot from the shadows at those who have honest hearts. 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 law and order are being destroyed, what can godly people do?" 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 The LORD is in his holy temple. The LORD is on his throne in heaven. He watches all people. His eyes study 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 watches over those who do what is right. But he hates sinful people 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 pour out flaming coals and burning sulfur on those who do what is wrong. A hot and dry wind will destroy them. 6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 The LORD always does what is right. So he loves it when people do what is fair. Those who are honest will enjoy his blessing. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
