Bible: Psalm 11

Psalm 11 1 

11:1 For the music director; by David.

In the Lord I have taken shelter. 2 

How can you say to me, 3 

“Flee to a mountain like a bird! 4 

11:2 For look, the wicked 5  prepare 6  their bows, 7 

they put their arrows on the strings,

to shoot in the darkness 8  at the morally upright. 9 

11:3 When the foundations 10  are destroyed,

what can the godly 11  accomplish? 12 

11:4 The Lord is in his holy temple; 13 

the Lord’s throne is in heaven. 14 

His eyes 15  watch; 16 

his eyes 17  examine 18  all people. 19 

11:5 The Lord approves of 20  the godly, 21 

but he 22  hates 23  the wicked and those who love to do violence. 24 

11:6 May the Lord rain down 25  burning coals 26  and brimstone 27  on the wicked!

A whirlwind is what they deserve! 28 

11:7 Certainly 29  the Lord is just; 30 

he rewards godly deeds; 31 

the upright will experience his favor. 32
