The Lord (A)tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
(B)Shall be [a]the portion of their cup.

For the Lord is righteous,
He (C)loves righteousness;
[b]His countenance beholds the upright.
