Psalm 10

  1. At the end. A Psalm. Pertaining to Dauid.
    In the Lord I have trusted; how will you say to my soul,
    “Flee to the mountains like a sparrow”?
  2. Because, behold, sinners bent a bow;
    they prepared arrows for the quiver,
    to shoot in the darkness at the upright in heart,
  3. because what you fashioned they overthrew.
    But the righteous — what did he do?
  4. The Lord is in his holy temple;
    the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
    His eyes look upon the poor;
    his eyelids examine the sons of humanity.
  5. The Lord examines the righteous and the impious,
    but he who agape-loves injustice hates his own soul.
  6. On sinners he will rain down snares;
    fire and sulfur and wind of a tempest are the portion of their cup.
  7. Because the Lord is righteous and agape-loved righteousness,
    his face beheld uprightness.
