Psalms 11

The  Lord Is in His Holy Temple

To the choirmaster. Of David.

In the  Lord I take refuge;
how can you say to my soul,
a Flee like a bird to your mountain,
for behold, the wicked b bend the bow;
c they have fitted their arrow to the string
to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
if d the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?”
Or for the foundations will be destroyed; what has the righteous done?

f The  Lord is in his holy temple;
the  Lord’s g throne is in heaven;
his eyes see, his eyelids h test the children of man.
The  Lord i tests the righteous,
but j his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.
Let him rain coals on the wicked;
k fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be l the portion of their cup.
For the  Lord is righteous;
he m loves righteous deeds;
n the upright shall behold his face.
