PSALM 11

« Psalm 10 | Psalm 11 | Psalm 12 »

The Lord Is in His Holy Temple
To the choirmaster. Of David.
11:1
In the Lord I take refuge;
how can you say to my soul,
“Flee like a bird to your mountain,
2
for behold, the wicked bend the bow;
they have fitted their arrow to the string
to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
3
if the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?”

4
The Lord is in his holy temple;
the Lord’s throne is in heaven;
his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.
5
The Lord tests the righteous,
but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.
6
Let him rain coals on the wicked;
fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.
7
For the Lord is righteous;
he loves righteous deeds;
the upright shall behold his face.
