Judgment from Heaven

Psalm 11

For the music director, a psalm of David.
In Adonai I have taken shelter.
How can you say to my soul:
“Fly like a bird to your mountain?
For look, the wicked bend the bow.
They fix their arrow on the bowstring
so they can shoot from the shadows
at those who are upright in heart.
If our foundations are destroyed,
what should the righteous do?”

Adonai is in His holy Temple.
Adonai’s throne is in heaven.[a]
His eyes are watching.
His eyelids observe the children of men.
Adonai examines the righteous.
But the wicked and one loving violence His soul hates.
On the wicked He will rain down fire, brimstone
    and scorching wind as the portion of their cup!
For Adonai is righteous—He loves justice.
The upright will see His face.
