The Psalms 11

The Refuge of the Upright
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1  In the LORD put I my trust:
how say ye to my soul,
Flee as a bird to your mountain?
2  For, lo, the wicked bend their bow,
they make ready their arrow upon the string,
that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
3  If the foundations be destroyed,
what can the righteous do?
4  The LORD is in his holy temple,
the LORD‘s throne is in heaven:
his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5  The LORD trieth the righteous:
but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
6  Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone,
and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
7  For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness;
his countenance doth behold the upright.
