Confidence in the LORD HEBREW TITLE: By David. 11 1I trust in the LORD for safety. How foolish of you to say to me, “Fly away like a bird to the mountains,[H] 2because the wicked have drawn their bows and aimed their arrows to shoot from the shadows at good people. 3There is nothing a good person can do when everything falls apart.” 4The LORD is in his holy temple; he has his throne in heaven. He watches people everywhere and knows what they are doing. 5He examines the good and the wicked alike; the lawless he hates with all his heart. 6He sends down flaming coals[I] and burning sulfur on the wicked; he punishes them with scorching winds. 7The LORD is righteous and loves good deeds; those who do them will live in his presence.
