Psalm 11

Refuge in the Lord

For the choir director. Of David.

I have taken refuge in the Lord.a

How can you say to me,

“Escape to the mountainsA like a bird!b

2For look, the wicked string bows;

they put their arrows on bowstrings

to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.a

3When the foundations are destroyed,

what can the righteous do? ”a

4The Lord is in his holy temple;a

the Lord—his throne is in heaven.b

His eyes watch;

his gazeA examines everyone.B

5The Lord examines the righteous,

but he hates the wicked

andA those who love violence.a

6Let him rain burning coalsA and sulfur on the wicked;

let a scorching wind be the portion in their cup.a

7For the Lord is righteous; he loves righteous deeds.

The upright will see his face.a
