4 The Lord is in his holy Temple; the Lord’s throne is in the heavens. His eyes see, his glance[e] examines humanity.[f] 5 The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence, he hates. 6 He rains on the wicked burning coals and sulfur; a scorching wind is their destiny.[g] 7 Indeed, the Lord is righteous; he loves righteousness; the upright will see him face-to-face.
