The LORD [is] in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne [is] in heaven: his eyes (d) behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

(d) Though all things in earth are out of order, yet God will execute judgment from heaven.

psa 11:6

Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, (e) fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: [this shall be] the (f) portion of their cup.
