1 Unto the end. A Psalm of David.
2 I trust in the Lord. How can you say to my soul, "Sojourn to the mountain, like a sparrow."
3 For behold, the sinners have bent their bow. They have prepared their arrows in the quiver, so as to shoot arrows in the dark at the upright of heart.
4 For they have destroyed the things that you have completed. But what has the just one done?
5 The Lord is in his holy temple. The Lord's throne is in heaven. His eyes look upon the poor. His eyelids question the sons of men.
6 The Lord questions the just and the impious. Yet he who loves iniquity, hates his own soul.
7 He will rain down snares upon sinners. Fire and brimstone and windstorms will be the portion of their cup.
8 For the Lord is just, and he has chosen justice. His countenance has beheld equity.
