New American Bible (Revised Edition)
7 The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
a refuge on the day of distress,
Taking care of those who look to him for protection,
8 when the flood rages;
He makes an end of his opponents,
and pursues his enemies into darkness.

9 What do you plot against the Lord,
the one about to bring total destruction?
No opponent rises a second time!
