Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer. -- By David. In Jehovah I trusted, how say ye to my soul, `They moved [to] Thy mountain for the bird? 1 In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 For lo, the wicked tread a bow, They have prepared their arrow on the string, To shoot in darkness 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 When the foundations are destroyed, The righteous -- what hath he done? 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 `Jehovah [is] in his holy temple: Jehovah -- in the heavens [is] His throne. His eyes see -- His eyelids try 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 Jehovah the righteous doth try. And the wicked and the lover of violence, Hath His soul hated, 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 He poureth on the wicked snares, fire, and brimstone, And a horrible wind [is] 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, Righteousness He hath loved, The upright doth His countenance see!' 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
