Psalm 11 Darby Translation (DARBY)

To the chief Musician. [A Psalm] of David.

11 In Jehovah have I put my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee [as] a bird to your mountain?

For behold, the wicked bend the bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may in darkness shoot at the upright in heart.

If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?

Jehovah [is] in the temple of his holiness; Jehovah,—his throne is in the heavens: his eyes behold, his eyelids try the children of men.

Jehovah trieth the righteous one; but the wicked, and him that loveth violence, his soul hateth.

Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone; and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.

For righteous is Jehovah; he loveth righteousness, his countenance doth behold the upright.

Psalm 11 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?”

The Lord is in his holy temple;
    the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
    his eyes examine them.
The Lord examines the righteous,
    but the wicked, those who love violence,
    he hates with a passion.
On the wicked he will rain
    fiery coals and burning sulfur;
    a scorching wind will be their lot.

For the Lord is righteous,
    he loves justice;
    the upright will see his face.

New International Version (NIV)
