OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • Taking refuge in Jehovah

    • “Jehovah is in his holy temple” (4)

    • God hates anyone loving violence (5)

To the director. Of David. 11  In Jehovah I have taken refuge.+ So how can you say to me:* “Flee like a bird to your mountain!   See how the wicked bend the bow;They set their arrow on the bowstring,To shoot from the darkness those upright in heart.   When the foundations* are torn down,What can the righteous do?”   Jehovah is in his holy temple.+ Jehovah’s throne is in the heavens.+ His own eyes see, his watchful* eyes examine the sons of men.+   Jehovah examines the righteous one as well as the wicked one;+He* hates anyone who loves violence.+   Upon the wicked, he will rain down snares;*Fire and sulfur+ and a scorching wind will be the portion of their cup.   For Jehovah is righteous;+ he loves righteous acts.+ The upright will see his face.*+
