Consider our pages
In the Lord I put my trust;
How can you say to my soul,
“Flee as a bird to your mountain”?

That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.

4 The Lord is in His holy temple,
The Lord’s throne is in heaven;
His eyes behold,
His eyelids test the sons of men.
5 The Lord tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
6 Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
Shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the Lord is righteous,
He loves righteousness;
His countenance beholds the upright.
Psalm 11:7 TLB
