1 For the leader. By David: In ADONAI I find refuge. So how can you say to me, "Flee like a bird to the mountains! 1 In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 See how the wicked are drawing their bows and setting their arrows on the string, to shoot from the shadows at honest men. 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 ADONAI is in his holy temple. ADONAI, his throne is in heaven. His eyes see and test humankind. 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 ADONAI tests the righteous; but he hates the wicked and the lover of violence. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 He will rain hot coals down on the wicked, fire, sulfur and scorching wind will be what they get to drink. 6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
7 For ADONAI is righteous; he loves righteousness; the upright will see his face. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
