Psalm 11:1-3 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 1 This Psalm containeth two parts.  In the first David showeth how hard assaults of temptations he sustained, and in how great anguish of mind he was, when Saul did persecute him. 4 Then next he rejoiceth that God sent him succor in his necessity, declaring his justice as well in governing the good, and the wicked men, as the whole world.

To him that excelleth. A Psalm of David.

In the Lord put I my trust; how say ye then to my soul, [a]Flee to your mountain as a bird?

For lo, the wicked bend their bow, and make ready their arrows upon the string, that they may secretly shoot at them which are upright in heart.

For the [b]foundations are cast down, what hath the [c]righteous done?


  1. Psalm 11:1 This is the wicked counsel of his enemies to him and his companions to drive him from the hope of God’s promise.
  2. Psalm 11:3 All hope of succor is taken away.
  3. Psalm 11:3 Yet am I innocent and my cause good.

Psalm 11:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 11

For the director of music. Of David.

In the Lord I take refuge.
    How then can you say to me:
    “Flee like a bird to your mountain.
For look, the wicked bend their bows;
    they set their arrows against the strings
to shoot from the shadows
    at the upright in heart.
When the foundations are being destroyed,
    what can the righteous do?”
