Half-Acrostic: Yahweh Takes Vengeance Against His Enemies

5 The mountains tremble before him, the hills convulse; the earth is laid waste before him, the world and all its inhabitants are laid waste. 6 No one can withstand his indignation! No one can resist his fierce anger! His wrath is poured out like volcanic fire, boulders are broken up as he approaches. 7 The Lord is good -- indeed, he is a fortress in time of distress, and he protects those who seek refuge in him.
