Psalm 11 To the Chief Musician or Choir Leader. [A Psalm] of David. 11 1IN THE Lord I take refuge [and put my trust]; how can you say to me, Flee like a bird to your mountain? 2For see, the wicked are bending the bow; they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they [furtively] in darkness may shoot at the upright in heart. 3If the foundations are destroyed, what can the [unyieldingly] righteous do, or what has He [the Righteous One] wrought or accomplished? 4The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven. His eyes behold; His eyelids test and prove the children of men. 5The Lord tests and proves the [unyieldingly] righteous, but His soul abhors the wicked and him who loves violence. 6Upon the wicked He will rain quick burning coals or snares; fire, brimstone, and a [dreadful] scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 7For the Lord is [rigidly] righteous, He loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold His face, or He beholds the upright.
