Psalms 11

Psalm 111

For the music director; by David.

11:1 In the Lord I have taken shelter.2

How can you say to me,3

“Flee to a mountain like a bird!4

11:2 For look, the wicked5 prepare6 their bows,7

they put their arrows on the strings,

to shoot in the darkness8 at the morally upright.9

11:3 When the foundations10 are destroyed,

what can the godly11 accomplish?”12

11:4 The Lord is in his holy temple;13

the Lord’s throne is in heaven.14

His eyes15 watch;16

his eyes17 examine18 all people.19

11:5 The Lord approves of20 the godly,21

but he22 hates23 the wicked and those who love to do violence.24

11:6 May the Lord rain down25 burning coals26 and brimstone27 on the wicked!

A whirlwind is what they deserve!28

11:7 Certainly29 the Lord is just;30

he rewards godly deeds;31

the upright will experience his favor.32
