1 I run to the Lord for safety. So how can you say to me, “Fly away like a bird to your mountain. 2 Look! Evil people are bending their bows. They are placing their arrows against the strings. They are planning to shoot from the shadows at those who have honest hearts. 3 When law and order are being destroyed, what can godly people do?”
4 The Lord is in his holy temple. The Lord is on his throne in heaven. He watches everyone on earth. His eyes study them. 5 The Lord watches over those who do what is right. But he really hates sinful people and those who love to hurt others. 6 He will pour out flaming coals and burning sulfur on those who do what is wrong. A hot and dry wind will destroy them.
7 The Lord always does what is right. So he loves it when people do what is fair. Those who are honest will enjoy his blessing.
