PSALM 11 The Lord a Refuge and Defense. For the choir director. A Psalm of David. 11 1In the Lord I take refuge; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain; 2For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, They [F]make ready their arrow upon the string To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?” 4The Lord is in His holy temple; the [G]Lord’s throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men. 5The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates. 6Upon the wicked He will rain [H]snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup. 7For the Lord is righteous, He loves [I]righteousness; The upright will behold His face.
