1 Magistro chori. David. In Domino confido, quomodo dicitis animae meae: "Transmigra in montem sicut passer!
2 Quoniam ecce peccatores intenderunt arcum, paraverunt sagittas suas super nervum, ut sagittent in obscuro rectos corde.
3 Quando fundamenta evertuntur, iustus quid faciat?".
4 Dominus in templo sancto suo, Dominus, in caelo sedes eius. Oculi eius in pauperem respiciunt, palpebrae eius interrogant filios hominum.
5 Dominus interrogat iustum et impium; qui autem diligit iniquitatem, odit anima eius.
6 Pluet super peccatores carbones ignis et sulphur; et spiritus procellarum pars calicis eorum.
7 Quoniam iustus Dominus et iustitias dilexit, recti videbunt vultum eius.
King James Version
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4 The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
