The Lord tests honest people,
but despises those
    who are cruel
    and love violence.
He will send fiery coals[a]
and flaming sulfur
    down on the wicked,
and they will drink nothing
    but a scorching wind.

The Lord always does right
    and wants justice done.
    Everyone who does right
    will see his face.
