1 [A melody] of David.
In Jehovah I have taken refuge. So how can you say to me: “Flee like a bird to your mountain!
2 See how the wicked bend the bow; They set their arrow on the bowstring, To shoot from the darkness those upright in heart.
3 When the foundations are torn down, What can the righteous do?”
4 Jehovah is in his holy temple. Jehovah’s throne is in the heavens. His own eyes see, his watchful eyes examine the sons of men.
5 Jehovah examines the righteous one as well as the wicked one; He hates anyone who loves violence.
6 Upon the wicked, he will rain down snares; Fire and sulfur and a scorching wind will be the portion of their cup.
7 For Jehovah is righteous; he loves righteous acts. The upright will see his face.
