1: In Jehovah do I take refuge: How say ye to my soul, Flee [as] a bird to your mountain; 2: For, lo, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string, That they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart; 3: If the foundations be destroyed, What can the righteous do? 4: Jehovah is in his holy temple; Jehovah, his throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men. 5: Jehovah trieth the righteous; But the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth. 6: Upon the wicked he will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind shall be the portion of their cup. 7: For Jehovah is righteous; he loveth righteousness: The upright shall behold his face.
