Psalm 11

For the music director; by David.

1In the Lord I have taken shelter.

How can you say to me,

“Flee to a mountain like a bird!

2For look, the wicked prepare their bows,

they put their arrows on the strings,

to shoot in the darkness at the morally upright.

3When the foundations are destroyed,

what can the godly accomplish?”

4The Lord is in his holy temple;

the Lord’s throne is in heaven.

His eyes watch;

his eyes examine all people.

5The Lord approves of the godly,

but he hates the wicked and those who love to do violence.

6May the Lord rain down burning coals and brimstone on the wicked!

A whirlwind is what they deserve!

7Certainly the Lord is just;

he rewards godly deeds;

the upright will experience his favor.

Psalm 10
