|Jehovah a Refuge and Defence|
|For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.|
| ||IN Jehovah do I take refuge:|
How say ye to my soul,
Flee as 1 a bird to your mountain;
| ||For, lo, the wicked bend the bow,|
They make ready their arrow upon the string,
That they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart;
| ||If 2 the foundations be destroyed,|
What can the righteous do?
| ||Jehovah is in his holy temple;|
Jehovah, his throne is in heaven;
His eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
| ||Jehovah trieth the righteous;|
But the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
| ||Upon the wicked he will rain snares;|
Fire and brimstone and burning wind shall be the portion of their cup.
| ||For Jehovah is righteous; he loveth righteousness: 3|
The 4 upright shall behold his face.
