Psalm 11:1-3 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

Confidence in Yahweh’s Righteousness

For the music director. Of David.[a]

11 In Yahweh I have taken refuge;
how can you say to my soul,
“Flee to your mountain like a bird”?
For look: The wicked string the bow.[b]
They have fitted their arrow to the string,
to shoot from the darkness
at the upright of heart.
When the foundations are destroyed
what can the righteous do?[c]


  1. Psalm 11:1 The Hebrew Bible counts the superscription as the first verse of the psalm
  2. Psalm 11:2 Literally “tread the bow,” that is, placing the foot on the bow to bend and string it
  3. Psalm 11:3 Or “what has the righteous done”
