Psalm 11
New American Standard Bible 1995Holman Christian Standard Bible
1For the choir director. A Psalm of David. In the LORD I take refuge; How can you say to my soul, "Flee as a bird to your mountain;1For the choir director. Davidic. I have taken refuge in the LORD. How can you say to me," Escape to the mountain like a bird!
2For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.2For look, the wicked string the bow; they put the arrow on the bowstring to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.
3If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?"3When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?"
4The LORD is in His holy temple; the LORD'S throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.4The LORD is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne is in heaven. His eyes watch; He examines everyone.
5The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates.5The LORD examines the righteous and the wicked. He hates the lover of violence.
6Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup.6He will rain burning coals and sulfur on the wicked; a scorching wind will be their portion.
7For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.7For the LORD is righteous; He loves righteous deeds. The upright will see His face.
