1 Samuel 17:34-35 KJV

In the LORD put I my trust: How say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men. The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
