For the choir director. A Psalm of David. In the LORD I take refuge; How can you say to my soul, 'Flee as a bird to your mountain; 2
For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3
If the foundations are 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. 5
The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates. 6
Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup. 7
For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.
