|[To the choirmaster. Of David.]|
|In the LORD I take refuge; |
how can you say to me,
"Flee like a bird to the mountains;
|Confidence in the Lord. Psalm 11(v10)|
|for lo, the wicked bend the bow, |
they have fitted their arrow to the string,
to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
|if the foundations are destroyed, |
what can the righteous do"?
|The LORD is in his holy temple, |
the LORD's throne is in heaven;
his eyes behold, his eyelids test, the children of men.
|The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, |
and his soul hates him that loves violence.
|On the wicked he will rain coals of fire and brimstone; |
a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.
|For the Lord is righteous, he loves righteous deeds; |
the upright shall behold his face.
|<< | Psalms: 11 | >>|
