Modern English Version
For the Music Director. A Psalm of David.
1 In the Lord I seek refuge;
how do you say to my soul,
“Flee as a bird to your mountain,
2 for the wicked bend their bow;
they make ready their arrow on the string,
that they may treacherously shoot
the upright in heart.
New International Version

they set their arrows(E) against the strings
to shoot from the shadows(F)
at the upright in heart.(G)
