(A psalm by David for the music leader.) Trusting the LORD 11 1The LORD is my fortress! Don't say to me, “Escape like a bird to the mountains!” 2You tell me, “Watch out! Those evil people have put their arrows on their bows, and they are standing in the shadows, aiming at good people. 3What can an honest person do when everything crumbles?” 4The LORD is sitting in his sacred temple on his throne in heaven. He knows everything we do because he sees us all. 5The LORD tests honest people, but despises those who are cruel and love violence. 6He will send fiery coals[M] and flaming sulfur down on the wicked, and they will drink nothing but a scorching wind. 7The LORD always does right and wants justice done. Everyone who does right will see his face.
