In a the LORD I put my trust;
How can you say to my soul,
"Flee as a bird to your mountain"?
For look! b The wicked bend their bow,
They make ready their arrow on the string,
That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.
c If the foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?
The LORD is in His holy temple,
The LORD's d throne is in heaven;
e His eyes behold,
His eyelids test the sons of men.
The LORD f tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
g Shall be the portion of their cup.
For the LORD is righteous,
He h loves righteousness;
His countenance beholds the upright.

And whenever the time came for Elkanah to make an offering, he would give portions to Peninnah his wife and to all her sons and daughters.
For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, And the wine is red; It is fully mixed, and He pours it out; Surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth Drain and drink down.
