To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1

IN the aLORD put I my trust: bhow say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

2

For, lo, cthe wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may 1*privily shoot at the upright in heart.

3

If the dfoundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

4

The eLORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in heaven: fhis eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

5

The gLORD trieth the righteous: hbut the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

6

iUpon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and *brimstone, and 2an horrible tempest: this shall be the jportion of their cup.

7

For kthe righteous LORD loveth righteousness; lhis countenance doth behold the upright.
