New Heart English Bible
1[For the Chief Musician. By David.] In the LORD, I take refuge. How can you say to my soul, "Flee as a bird to your mountain."
2For, look, the wicked bend their bows. They set their arrows on the strings, that they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.
3If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4The LORD is in his holy temple. The LORD is on his throne in heaven. His eyes look upon the poor. His eyes examine the children of men.
5The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and the one who loves violence his soul hates.
6On the wicked he will rain blazing coals; fire, sulfur, and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.
7For the LORD is righteous. He loves righteousness. The upright shall see his face.
