The Lord a Refuge and Defense.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.1 In the Lord I a take refuge;
How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your b mountain;
2For, behold, the wicked c bend the bow,
▼ Or fixed, e make ready their arrow upon the string
To f shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.
3If the g foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?”
4The Lord is in His h holy temple; the ▼
▼ Lit Lord , His throneLord’s j throne is in heaven;
His k eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.
5The Lord l tests the righteous and m the wicked,
And the one who loves violence His soul hates.
6Upon the wicked He will n rain ▼
▼ Or coals of firesnares;
p Fire and brimstone and q burning wind will be the portion of r their cup.
7For the Lord is s righteous t He loves ▼
▼ Or righteous deedsrighteousness;
The upright will v behold His face.
