Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (10-1) <Unto the end. A psalm to David.> (10-2) In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: Get thee away from hence to the mountain, like a sparrow. 1 In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 (10-3) For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow: they have prepared their arrows in the quiver, to shoot in the dark the upright of 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 (10-4) For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: but what has the just man done? 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
4 (10-5) The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven. His eyes look on the poor man: his eyelids examine 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 (10-6) The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: but he that loveth iniquity, hateth his own soul. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
6 (10-7) He shall rain snares upon sinners: fire and brimstone, and storms of winds, 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 (10-8) For the Lord is just, and hath loved justice: his countenance hath beheld righteousness. 7 For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
