11 In the Lord I take refuge [and put my trust]; How can you say to me, “Flee like a bird to your mountain; 2 For look, the wicked are bending the bow; They take aim with their arrow on the string To shoot [by stealth] in darkness at the upright in heart. 3 “If the foundations [of a godly society] are destroyed, What can the righteous do?”
4 The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven. His eyes see, His eyelids test the children of men. 5 The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, And His soul hates the [malevolent] one who loves violence. 6 Upon the wicked (godless) He will rain coals of fire; Fire and [a]brimstone and a dreadful scorching wind will be the portion of their cup [of doom]. 7 For the Lord is [absolutely] righteous, He loves righteousness (virtue, morality, justice); The upright shall see His face.
