Psalm 11

1 In the LordI take refuge.
How then can you say to me:
“Flee like a bird to your mountain.

2 For look, the wicked bend their bows;
they set their arrows against the strings
to shoot from the shadows
at the upright in heart.

3 When the foundations are being destroyed,
what can the righteous do?”

4 The Lordis in his holy temple;
the Lordis on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
his eyes examine them.

5 The Lordexamines the righteous,
but the wicked, those who love violence,
he hates with a passion.

6 On the wicked he will rain
fiery coals and burning sulfur;
a scorching wind will be their lot.

7 For the Lordis righteous,
he loves justice;
the upright will see his face.
