1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. In the Lord I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, "Flee as 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 For look! The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly at 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 foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do? 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 The Lord is in His holy temple, The Lord's throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons 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 tests the righteous, But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 Upon the wicked He will rain coals; Fire and brimstone and a burning 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 the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
