Psalms 11

In the LORD I Take Refuge

For the choirmaster. Of David. In the LORD I take refuge. So how can you say to me, “Flee to your mountain like a bird! For behold, the wicked bend [their] bows; they set their arrow on the string to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart. If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” The LORD is in His holy temple; the LORD is on His heavenly throne. His eyes are watching closely; [they] examine the sons of men. The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked; His soul hates the lover of violence. On the wicked He will rain fiery coals and brimstone; a scorching wind will be their portion. For the LORD is righteous; He loves justice. The upright will see His face.
