1 In YHWH I have taken refuge; Why do you say to me, 'Flee to your mountain like a bird'?
2 For look! The wrong bend a bow, They set their arrow on the string, To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.
3 When the foundations are destroyed, What shall the righteous do?
4 YHWH is in His set-apart Hekal, The throne of YHWH is in the heavens. His eyes see, His eyelids examine the sons of men.
5 YHWH tries the righteous, But His being shall hate the wrong And the one who loves violence.
6 Upon the wrong He rains snares, Fire and sulphur and a scorching wind Are the portion of their cup.
7 For YHWH is righteous, He has loved righteousness; The upright shall see His face.
