The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked,
And His soul hates the [malevolent] one who loves violence.(A)
Upon the wicked (godless) He will rain coals of fire;
Fire and [a]brimstone and a dreadful scorching wind will be the portion of their cup [of doom].
For the Lord is [absolutely] righteous, He loves righteousness (virtue, morality, justice);
The upright shall see His face.
- Psalm 11:6 I.e. burning sulfur.
