“Flee like a bird to your mountain.
2 For look, the wicked bend their bows;
they set their arrows against the strings
to shoot from the shadows
at the upright in heart.
3 When the foundations are being destroyed,
what can the righteous do?” [1]

4 The Lord is in his holy temple;
the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
He observes the sons of men;
his eyes examine them.
5 The Lord examines the righteous,
but the wicked [2] and those who love violence
his soul hates.
6 On the wicked he will rain
fiery coals and burning sulphur;
a scorching wind will be their lot.

7 For the Lord is righteous,
he loves justice;
upright men will see his face.

[1]
Or, what is the Righteous One doing.

[2]
Or, The Lord, the Righteous One, examines the wicked, /.

The archers in this scene are aiming at the bird in the sky, based on verses 1-2 above, “Flee like a bird to your mountain. 2 For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings…”
