The Lord is good,
        a haven in a day of distress.
    He acknowledges those who take refuge in him.
With a rushing flood, he will utterly destroy her[a] place
        and pursue his enemies into darkness.

A challenge to God’s enemies

What are you plotting against the Lord?
        He is one who can annihilate!
        Distress will not arise twice.
