International Standard Version
1I take refuge in the LORD. So how can you say to me, "Flee like a bird to the mountains."?
2Look, the wicked have bent their bow and placed their arrow on the string, to shoot from the darkness at the upright in heart.
3When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4The LORD is in his holy Temple; the LORD's throne is in the heavens. His eyes see, his glance examines humanity.
5The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence, he hates.
6He rains on the wicked burning coals and sulfur; a scorching wind is their destiny.
7Indeed, the LORD is righteous; he loves righteousness; the upright will see him face-to-face.
