(A)The Lord is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And (B)He knows those who trust in Him.
But with an overflowing flood
He will make an utter end of its place,
And darkness will pursue His enemies.

(C)What do you [a]conspire against the Lord?
(D)He will make an utter end of it.
Affliction will not rise up a second time.
10 For while tangled (E)like thorns,
(F)And while drunken like drunkards,
(G)They shall be devoured like stubble fully dried.
11 From you comes forth one
Who plots evil against the Lord,
A [b]wicked counselor.
