Yahweh Is in His Holy Temple

For the choir director. Of David.

11 In Yahweh I (A)take refuge;
How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your (B)mountain;
For, behold, the wicked (C)bend the bow,
They [a](D)make ready their arrow upon the string
To (E)shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.
If the (F)foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?”

Yahweh is in His (G)holy temple; [b]Yahweh’s (H)throne is in heaven;
His (I)eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.
Yahweh (J)tests the righteous,
But (K)the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
May He (L)rain [c]snares upon the wicked;
(M)Fire and brimstone and (N)burning wind will be the portion of (O)their cup.
For Yahweh is (P)righteous, (Q)He loves [d]righteousness;
The upright will (R)behold His face.
