- In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
- For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.
- When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
- The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them.
- The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
