Psalm 11 New International Version

The Refuge of the Upright

11 1  In the Lord I 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 Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne. He observes everyone on earth; his eyes examine them. 5  The Lord examines 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 Lord is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face.
