Psalms, CHAPTER 11
For the leader. Of David.
In the LORD I take refuge;
how can you say to me,
“Flee like a bird to the mountains!
See how the wicked string their bows,
fit their arrows to the string
to shoot from the shadows at the upright of heart.
If foundations are destroyed,
what can the just one do?”
The LORD is in his holy temple;
the LORD’s throne is in heaven.
God’s eyes keep careful watch;
they test the children of Adam.
The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked,
hates those who love violence,
And rains upon the wicked
fiery coals and brimstone,
a scorching wind their allotted cup.
The LORD is just and loves just deeds;
the upright will see his face.
