Psalms Chapter 11 |
1 For the leader. Of David.
In the Lord I take refuge;
how can you say to me,
“Take to the hills like a bird!
2For see, the wicked bend the bow,
they set their arrow on the string
to shoot from the shadows at the upright.
3When the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous man do?”
4The Lord is in His holy palace;
the Lord—His throne is in heaven;
His eyes behold, His gaze searches mankind.
5The Lord seeks out the righteous man,
but loathes the wicked one who loves injustice.
6He will rain down upon the wicked blazing coals and sulfur;
a scorching wind shall be their lot.
7For the Lord is righteous;
He loves righteous deeds;
the upright shall behold His face.
