Psalm 11 World English Bible

The Refuge of the Upright

11 1  In Yahweh, I take refuge.
How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain!” 2  For, behold, the wicked bend their bows.
They set their arrows on the strings,
that they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3  If the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?

4  Yahweh is in his holy temple.
Yahweh is on his throne in heaven.
His eyes observe.
His eyes examine the children of men. 5  Yahweh examines the righteous,
but the wicked and him who loves violence his soul hates. 6  On the wicked he will rain blazing coals;
fire, sulfur, and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 7  For Yahweh is righteous.
He loves righteousness.
The upright shall see his face.
