Psalms Chapter 10
In Domino confido.
The just man's confidence in God in the midst of persecutions.
10:1. Unto the end. A psalm to David.
10:2. In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: Get thee away from hence to the mountain, like a sparrow.
10:3. For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow: they have prepared their arrows in the quiver, to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.
10:4. For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: but what has the just man done?
10:5. The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven. His eyes look on the poor man: his eyelids examine the sons of men.
10:6. The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: but he that loveth iniquity, hateth his own soul.
10:7. He shall rain snares upon sinners: fire and brimstone, and storms of winds, shall be the portion of their cup.
10:8. For the Lord is just, and hath loved justice: his countenance hath beheld righteousness.
